I have been going through edits with the editor and the only thing on my mind is:
I’M A HORRIBLE WRITER!
Let’s back up.
I can’t be a horrible writer if my manuscript was picked up by a publisher….
I’M A HORRIBLE GRAMMAR-IAN!
Maybe that’s it. I’m great at writing, but my grammar skills are horrible. This is not news to me or my school teachers. I know this fact, my grades reported it, and the teachers did their fair share of reminding me, YOU SUCK!
Maybe, I should keep this secret to myself?
I NEED TO REMEMBER ALL THESE EDITOR’S NOTES! That’s my next step. I read and re-read each edit note in hopes of remembering the lesson for next time.
I make the SAME mistakes – A LOT!
Deep down in the pit of my stomach, I’m hoping I’m not as bad as I think. Yet, if I am, my hope is to learn from this and make sure that I DON’T make at least half of these mistakes with the next manuscript.
