This one is going to be short. Just one bit of advice for those who haven’t already figured it out. If you don’t like editing–hell, if you don’t LOVE editing, you better learn to. Writing the actual story is the easy part. The polishing and revising and criticism that comes after that is the real test of your endurance and your dedication. Few people can make it past the first draft stage. Even fewer last through the thousands of comments and edits it takes to actually make a story work.
Do you have what it takes?
I dare you to take the challenge. 😉
