It’s Romance Weekly Blog Hop day! 😀
If you’ve come over from Mikki Cober’s blog then welcome. If not, then why not check out her answers?
The questions are rather topical this week as I am all about the editing at the moment with my latest book.
1.When do you decide that you’ve done enough editing and changes would now be making it different, not better? So it’s the time to submit.
I think it really is an instinctual thing. At some point, I think a writer just knows it’s time to let their work go. Generally most authors will never be completely satisfied with their book, but at some point you just got to do it 😀
For me, it is definitely the point when I am getting ridiculously nit-picky over things, small things that I’ve gone over like fifty times and barely changed. By that point I know it’s time to finish it and let it go (totally not singing the song from Frozen or anything now!).
2. When and how do you accept change advice by rejection letters and critique partners?
I am always open to advice and criticism, and I am lucky that my readers all tend to spot different parts about my writing.
Taking criticism and knowing you will have to edit and change your work based on other’s opinions is just part of the job. It has to be done, and I view it as a great opportunity to see what areas of my writing I can improve on.
3. When you’re not writing, how do you spend your day or do you create your day around your writing?
Writing does tend to be my focus nowadays 😀 When I’m not writing, I am generally always thinking about it.
If I’m not writing and really want to take my head out of the game I play video games, read, or do some drawing, those are generally my go-to activities to stop me thinking about writing completely.
Some interesting questions this week!
Now find out what Carrie Elks has to say on the subject, I always love her answers to the hop questions, well, all her posts in general actually!
How would you answer this week’s questions? How do you know when it’s time to stop editing and let it go?
