I'm still editing. It's slow, painstaking work largely involving small tweaks and the moving of commas. I make changes and then the next day change them back again. Some days I read my work and think it's not too bad, the next day I hate it.
I know I've got to take my time on this edit, to get the novel into the best shape I possibly can. But it's causing far more self-doubt than even the actual writing did, and that at times was like pulling teeth. Some days the right words come, sometimes I can't think of even simple expressions. I don't know if this a side effect of my MS or just a deficiency in my writing skills.
To cheer myself up I've been researching agents to whom I might wish to submit. But if I feel like this about the novel now, how on earth will I be when it is launched out into the world on its own?
