The Value of Editing

Yay! I have just finished NaNoWriMo 2010 having reached 50,000 words for my novel “Lucky For Some, Thirteen”. I recognize that the novel is far from being complete though I have much to celebrate about. I have finished the first step- that of writing the foundation of the novel. Typically, novels in the genre I write in of thrillers/mysteries should be of at least 70,000-80,000 words.

What next then? Loads of work to be done in revising and editing the novel. I had this in my mind when by chance I came upon this articles called ” Writing To Be Read” (which by co-incidence is the name of this my writing blog) in The World Wide You a site with internet resources and strategies for writers.

One part of the journey is over. Another begins.
