I never really thought that editing your own book could be very daunting and frustrating at time. As I have said before, it is a full time job. I feel like I have not only put my characters through a lot, I have also put myself as well. I have read my book so many times that lines are starting to be blurred and I really just want to step away from it all. Who knew that writing your first novel would be so much work! When I started all this, I merely thought, I would find an editor, send them my manuscript, get some feedback on what might be best for the book, make changes where they needed to be, then move on. Oh no. Not so simple. Depending on how much needs to be changed, what you thought would only take a few days, ends up taking months. Nothing worth having is given easily; this is not a sprint, its a marathon. Well, unless you're already a famous author. I keep telling myself however, its worth it.
