WIP Almost Done!
You know you're typing too fast when you try to type the word nausea and Microsoft Word changes it to Nashua. But I'm so excited to finish my WIP. I'm at the final chapters, and thanks to everyone who gave me great advice on endings, I've got the story all mapped out.
I even have a list of agents I'm going to query. And don't worry, I'll keep you all updated on that front as well.
I have three beta readers that have agreed to read the entire thing, and I'm also working on edits as I finish. Today I axed all of the "justs" and "she thought/she realized".
"She realized she would never see him again."
It's much better if you say, "She would never see him again." It's implied that she realized it, especially if the chapter is written in her POV.
Tomorrow I'm going after all of the "was's" and "thats".
I'll be on a reduced posting schedule until I finish. But I'll keep you all updated.
