Writing, Rewriting and Editing Require Hard Work

Never send something to print without a good edit. I am fine-tooth combing and responding to my publishers edit on my next novel, Daughters of the West Mesa. I completed five out of twenty-one chapters in an effort to get closer to print. It is hard work. I wrote the manuscript, read it and made changes three times. My critique group read it. My friend, Norma, read and edited it. My publisher still returned it with minor editing needed. I don’t mind the work, for it produces a fine finished book. But I do get tired.
