Just When I Thought I Had It
So, I just finished working through a massive rewrite of my novel. *fist pump* I reached the end and felt like I'd made some freaking brilliant changes. Thank you beta reader!! You know who you are. ;)
"Look out, publishers. Here I come!" :)
The problem with revisions is as soon as you complete one, you’re about to start the next. I went back to the first chapter to tighten, clarify, and look for inconsistencies throughout the novel. What I read caught me off guard.
*Stella face-plants onto the floor*
There is quite an inconsistency in voice and style from the beginning of the novel and the end. It made me realize my writing style really evolved over the rewrite. While it's a good sign that my style has changed it means more work in the upcoming revisions than I'd anticipated.
Let me know if this has happened to your writing, and what your thoughts about it were. I'd love to read your comments.

Okay, enough procrastination. Back to work.
