It happens every book — I lose the ability to see the forest for the trees, get trapped in what I thought the book was about, and so can’t see what it actually is about. Solution? Feedback from cherished readers.
Cherished, and also ruthless. I’m not one for corporate slogans, but “no pain, no gain” says it all. I’m working ruthless beta into this revision, and electrified by the possibilities. Writing is hard. Revision, revision, revision is even harder.
But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
