The same is true for the creative process of writing. In the past few weeks, I’ve received some reader feedback, critique group feedback and contest judge feedback. That’s a lot of feedback to take in all at once.
So, after several weeks of thinking, musing, planning, re-planning, re-working and tweaking the novel in my head over and over, I have come up with several important changes to my manuscript and possibly my career.
Truth Unbecoming, the novel I wrote during National Novel Writing Month this past November, is soon to be re-titled and cast into a new genre of Historical fiction. There are also many new plot changes and additions and I’m excited to see the novel journey in this direction.
At first, it was a bit disparaging to hear so much criticism, but as I’ve always said, I love red ink and love to learn from it. So off I go to grow and mold the manuscript into something stronger. From there, it’s getting it all ready for the Summer Oregon Christian Writer’s Conference.
