Hey, that's GREAT!!! Congratulations! Do a victory lap around the living room!
I'm just about halfway through the FIRST pass at editing my current book, and I can relate. I'm not even ready to print it out yet; I know there is so much I'm going to change right away. I have fantasized about taking it to Kinko's to print up some day, though.
I'm cringing as I read and then I take a big breath and type more drivel to fill in plot holes and flesh out characters. Then I get to cringe some more thinking about asking people to read it eventually. I'm thinking about fleshing it out as much as possible, then getting one or two kind readers to take a pass. I feel like getting to this stage has completely destroyed my ability to see what might be good and what needs to change.
Mostly, I fear that my writing is just all wrong, and I'll need to go in paragraph by paragraph and rewrite. But I'll do it, and it will help to have specific pointers from a few readers.
It's not helping that I am also partway through the sequel and have the third in the trilogy outlined. I'll probably edit this one just for content mostly, and then have people read it while I try to get the next one done. I'm not sure if having feedback is going to help or hinder writing more in the trilogy.
But I love my characters and their stories. I just love them. I love closing my eyes and thinking about them, not even doing much of anything, just loving them. So that makes it a little exciting to see if anyone else likes them. Just a little bit?
