WRITING INSIGHTS: WHY DON’T AGENTS TELL YOU WHY THEY REJECTED YOUR BOOK? -
Jimmy Fallon's Third Children's Book Is Nearly Here, and Its Alternative Title Is Too Good
Seventy books later - and Bishop is still creating
...I finished editing what I started yesterday afternoon. Gonna give myself tomorrow and Wednesday off for personal reasons, but then get started on editing again on Thursday now that I'm back into the swing of things after just over a week off.
I mis-counted yesterday, but I've definitely edited 6 MG manuscripts and the appropriate synopses now, so I'm gonna have the rest of the day off and start again tomorrow. The first two that I edited have definitely been the best so far and I'm still feeling really proud of them. I seem to be gaining confidence but losing my creativity now though, which is unfortunate. I'm not about to give up on them, but I feel more confident querying with the first two right now.
Just finished editing my fourth MG novel of the week and while it wasn't as good as the first one, especially, it's certainly better than my Toni trilogy was lol Out of about 100 MSs, I've only felt the need to archive three manuscripts so far, which is pretty good going I reckon.
Today's MS needed a touch more work than the first two, but it's still publishable standard I reckon.
Tomorrow's MS already needs some capitalisation editing, just from the file name and first paragraph of the synopsis so could be a heavy editing day tomorrow, but that's OK, it'll be worth it when I see it on the shelves!
