After a brief break for the holidays I’ve returned to revising my manuscript. I finished chapter 1 and am on to the second. So far I am pleasantly surprised, most of what I’ve written has stood up after a year’s time. For the most part the text needs very little changing, just minor adjustments and flaws I now notice. I’m sure that will change once I get into the bulk of the work.
My concern is the main plot will need some significant adjustment in order to work better as an enjoyable story. Certain chapters need more detail, while I’m sure others need pruning. The finale definitely needs to be fixed, if not rewritten entirely. I feel the story sort of drops off at the end, without certain closure.
But for now, I’m on chapter 2. I’ll tackle the rest when I get to it.
