  1. I have learned from writing that everyone is going to not like what you write. My first book in a series went from a beta reader to a editor then a developmental editor. Then back to the editor and still got picked away.

    • Was it still your story in the end? This is what worries at times with my own work. Thank you for sharing Lynn

      • After the 3rd chapter she told me I worked to fast. I am a hands on learner . If some gives me a clue where to head a light bulb comes on. She had my manuscript for 4 months and I was told we would be done by that. I would not ever use a developmental editor again. As of changing the work yes but you don’t have to agree with them just reject it

      • Gracious. That was a lot. As a writer i use Free Flow Writing. Nowthing is ever planned though can be discussed. I’ve worked with a few editors, however unless they know the world of editing I don’t touch them anymore. Someone will always see a mistake in grammar or spelling due to how different the English language is throughout the world today.

        I’m not sure you can work to fast either, especially the first draft.

        Agree to disagree as my mother would say. Let me know when you release your book Lynn. Thanks

      • It was released last month:). I ave finally found a editor that gets me and we get alone great. I have both books out in the series and now working on my 4 book series .

      • That is great. Congrats I can understand about the – get me and my story 🙂

      • Message me on Facebook and I will gift you the book to read . I love hearing people’s replies and honesty is what I need. My editor does want to add more later on since several readers said they would like to know more about the characters

      • Thank you. I will do that. Sometimes minor characters do grab a readers attention and you can end up with an offshoot of the series. I’ll see you on FB 🙂
