Revising the Novel “Freeing Tanner Rose”: A Love-Hate Process

Saving Tanner Rose-cover sneak peek
Ahhhhh…revising is the most frustrating, exhilarating,  tedious, exciting process, is it not? It’s an oxymoronic experience, for sure!

I’m right at the end of revising Freeing Tanner Rose, but there’s still a few more full revisions to do. The story is complete and I have a reader on it. I only have a moment to breathe, and then I’ll get a list of questions that came up during the read. I’ll fix those. Then I’ll reread the whole thing to elaborate, add, and adjust where necessary. Then I’ll do another full read for a final edit. This is why writers get sick of their own stories, while still in awe of their own accomplishment.

During the revision process, I’ll love and I’ll hate what I wrote. And then when it’s done, I’ll have to let it go. And that’s a whole other emotional phase in the writing process.

While the end is close, it feels so far away! I hope to preview the first chapter soon.

Thanks for checking in.

Best and blessings to you all, TMG
