As of today, it’s been 2 days since I finished the first draft of the story. Following a piece of advice from fellow writers, I am currently putting it aside to let it stew and will return to it at the end of June or beginning of July.
In the meantime, I am working on another story idea, which came to me while I was getting towards the end of my previous one. This story will be published on Wattpad in a serial fashion… With weekly updates, I hope. My cover has already been made (it’s crude and not fancy but it will convey the tone, I hope.)
Then, onto July and the edits will begin. I am a little wary about putting my work out there for the world to tear apart. I’m learning that a writer needs to have a thick skin to survive. And besides, if someone doesn’t like the story, it’s not necessarily a reflection on the writer, personally, it’s a reflection on the work itself. It might not a be a good fit or their genre or topic.
