Jade. She's so good with pointing out mistakes and tightening my work. I've polished every chapter again based on her feedback. As scary as it is to have someone else read your work, it's great to see it through different eyes. She often points out inconsistencies and questions why I've done something.
So what now?
Well, now I'm going to send it out for beta reading. In the meantime i plan on switching gears and going back to Midnight Raynne. I really would like to polish that story up enough to have it out for beta reading by May. Fingers crossed I can make that deadline. I'm actually going to take a few days to read and do some critiques first. I'm having a difficult time saying goodbye to Phoebe this time. For some reason it's more difficult to switch gears. I've been stalling on this last polishing bit. I had nine chapters to polish based on Jade's responses, and I just sat down the other day to really delve into it. I've been great at procrastinating recently.
Starting Monday I'll be delving into that project once again head first. I'm excited to be going back to Raynne, but sad to be leaving Phoebe behind. Phoebe's story is sure to have a little more work to come after the beta stage, but hopefully not as much as it needed this last time.
Your Turn -> How do you switch gears?
