The editing on my first manuscript is coming along nicely. So far, I have completed two of thirteen chapters. Today, I am hoping to get through the third chapter.
Ultimately, I would have liked to have the entire manuscript edited before the end of the year. With Christmas fast approaching, I'm not sure I will keep to that schedule. However, I am hoping to send out the edited manuscript to beta readers early in the New Year. I am still in the process of selecting who these readers will be.
Choosing beta readers is not an easy task. It's always best to have betas that are impartial - usually meaning, not your family and closest friends. In this stage, you're not looking for a pat on the back, rather, input that will benefit your manuscript.
I'll keep focused on the editing for now.
