Thanks Ath and Libby!

Yes I think my experience was unusual in the sheer volume of rewriting I ended up doing. It really didn’t help that I began writing the novel with absolutely no idea about plot or where I was headed. I’m pretty sure that if I’d had a clearer outline and idea of the shape of my book from the start it wouldn’t have needed 24 (and counting) drafts!

But I do think the principal stands that you have to be incredibly ruthless with your own work to get it up to standard for potential publication.

I am hoping to post an update on my journey and progress soon. Watch this spaceā€¦
