2nd draft begins
I don't have much to talk about on this blog post, but there is a bit of good news this week. This weekend I begin the second draft of my first book in the Imagient King series. I want to thank beta readers for reading my first draft and continue to give me positive feedback. But, I have to start working on what I need to fix in my second draft. I have compiled my own notes as well as some notes I have gotten from my friends and beta readers. I want to thank you all for giving me feedback and having interest in my book. I may not be the best writer, but you all give me hope that I can improve.
Next step is the second draft, I already have worked on my edited outline and will fix some things for my second draft. Once second draft is done everyone we will have a second beta readers session. I want to be done with the second draft by no later than January, but December is when I want to ideally be done by. That month will get pushed back depending if I want to do NaWriNoMo novel, which I have ideas for a one shot dark fantasy novel, but I might wait until I'm done with my second draft.
Once I get done with my second draft, I will have a second beta reader session after a revision process and continue to take feedback and look at what I like and don't like about my second draft. Hopefully after the second beta reader session around March if I am in a good position I will send my edited second draft to an editor and hopefully get the book professionally edited. That will mean more edits, more rewrites, and more drafts. But, if I want to publish this book in the next few years it is the next logical conclusion. So I want to once again thank everyone.
