Getting Frozen Fire ready for another round of submissions. Reprinted it to read aloud to the cats. In fact, Jake is sitting on top of it now, waiting for me to begin. Elwood will come once I begin…as long as it’s outside.
I always read my manuscripts aloud after every draft. If I’ve sent it out a few times and it comes back without a home, I again read it aloud and often end up reworking it. My writers’ group will see the problem pages again. And if I can’t figure out why it’s not being accepted, I bring my submission package to the group too.
I’d love to be the kind of writer who writes the story…once. Then it’s done. Publishers fight over it and my readers beg for more.
I’m not there yet, so until then, I’ll just keep reprinting and rereading. My cats never get tired of hearing the same stories over and over.
