Who gets the stomach flu in April? Kat does!
Okay, okay, enough self pity. The title of this post isn’t completely fascetious: I actually do have good news.
I have finished going through my manuscript, and it actually resembles a novel!! How cool is that? It’s such a good feeling to have a coherent whole when the writing process goes by piece by piece. The fact that all of those pieces fit together is the best feeling ever.
A year ago when I was close to finishing writing my novel (and I had yet no idea how daunting the task of editing would be), I mentioned my manuscript to my script writing professor, who then offered her services to help me with it over summer.
Due to some unfortunate circumstances involving my ever failing health, I was not able to finish my novel in time for the summer, and I thought the opportunity had been lost.
But here’s where the good news comes in! Now that I feel I have something resembling a novel, I sent her a message asking if the offer for her help still stands, even though it’s been a year since she offered. And she said yes! She is a successful Canadian author/playwrite as well as a professor and she’s going to be helping little ol’ me! *screams in joy*
I feel like with her help, my manuscript will actually stand a chance against the millions of other unpublished manuscripts out there.
Good news indeed.
