My beta-reader has finally finished my book! Very exciting time.
Lots of problems/improvements have been made known now. So after a bit of picking up my shattered heart, I’ve begun to amend things. It’s been a week or so, and I’ve already added some scenes, detail, and altered story-archs.
I still have a ways to go. It’s pretty exciting now that I have external perception. My work can be elevated to a state that is good enough to start getting rejection letters!
To readers: If you are going through this–any tips? What are your experiences with editing after receiving beta-reader comments?
