Today sees me beginning revisions on my third novel. Completing the first draft of any novel is a real milestone and one to be cherished but the emotional journey on which I've accompanied my characters is over. Revisions and edits have their very own joys and challenges. It’s time to take a step back and think about whether something works and how to make it better, to polish those scenes so readers can really picture what my characters are up to. Now begins a very different journey.
