Revisions, revisions!

In his book titled Plot, Ansen Dibell wrote, “Any story worth telling is worth revising.” That’s what I’m still doing… revising The Spanish Coin.

As I re-read every sentence, every word, I look for word repetition, unnecessary adjectives and adverbs, shifts in point-of-view, descriptions I’ve written and those I failed to include.

I’m bombarded by questions. Will my readers identify with the main character? Will they care what happens to her? Do I have too many characters? Are the sub-plots woven into the book as well as they could be? Will I ever get this published? Will people buy it?

A day in the life of a would-be author.
