So many drafts!

I thought that I would sit down and pop off a draft that I would send to a couple of friends, get their comments, make some changes and shoot off to an agent who could not wait to represent me. It would all be so easy. I mean how hard can it be to put thoughts into words? Well, my first book went through 14 drafts mostly because I did not know what I was doing. I was learning to write at a professional level. I know have eight readers who agree to read the manuscript and make critical comments within a month’s time. Putting myself on a schedule with a deadline – getting a new book out every year, has helped tremendously.

My second book took less time and went through fewer drafts because I had a better idea of what I was doing. When I sent the draft to my readers, the same from the first book, I asked them not to tell me what was good about it, which I already knew, but to tell me what was wrong with it. They did and it is now available for everyone to enjoy!
