When I decided to first put words into my MS word document I was overcome with excitement. I had grand dreams of one day making story telling my full time career. I have to be honest when I say I was completely naive and didn’t fully appreciate how difficult the industry is for indies and traditionally published authors but I went along for the ride anyway. This led to a 20 months journey where I’ve had short stories published, finished two full manuscripts and started a third. The excitement waned but the love for creating didn’t.
Now I have to admit the initial excitement I felt all that time ago in March 2013 has come back a little because I’ve finally hired my first editor. The conversations we’ve had have been great. It all sounds to be exactly what I wanted and it’s the first professional I’ve have look over my work with a critical eye. I’ll be keen to know where I’ve faltered and where I can improve. In my eyes it’s taking the next step in my writing career.
This is my first experience with editors but let me know what you’re experience has been?
