3rd Edit Is Always the Toughest

Despite the serious title, this is a celebratory post. I’ve just finished the 3rd edit of my work-in-progress. It’s always the most challenging because it’s usually the one where lots and lots of details are cemented and made consistent. And because this book has a background story that’s about ten chapters long, I had to figure out the best placement for them.

So these are all the words I have for you about what happened Thursday, because we are actually well into Friday. *yawns*

Here’s a celebratory turtle that came to visit us a while back…

PS–thanks for all the wonderful wishes yesterday! ๐Ÿ’œ

PPS–the celebratory turtle is also celebrating our sweet daughter, Nora, who is 25 today! ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŒธ



(All hail the celebratory turtle!)

    Believe it or not, but I adore Turtles, Laura; this one is simply precious, too. Happy Birthday to your daughter Nora, and go girl with finishing your 3rd edit ( don’t you have BETA readers and an editor)?
    Have a very lovely day and relax those hands and fingers; do some yoga movements for them as well as your wrists.

      With BETA readers and my agent, now. They are all so good to me. I’ve had a lovely day and am looking forward to serious sleep! Have a great weekend!
