So, I am struck with another problem. This is a first book in a series of four. Yes, the other books can be read as stand alone books, but I feel like this first one is important to the series. So, do I take the time and do a severe revision or do I leave it alone?
My brother would say, don't touch it. It's nice to see the writers progression. But then again, how can I send a MS that I don't feel is ready? UGGG! Problem.
On a more positive note, at least I can see that my writing is improving. I am in no way stating that it is fantastic, but it is just better. That is one good thing to see, but leaving it this way causes me a lot of unease. But reworking an entire MS is also dreadfully difficult. My stomach curls in knots just thinking about it.
So, I remain stuck. Do I move on, forget the original MS, and continue on with my writing? Or do I take the time and make this book better?
I hate making decisions like this. Makes my head hurt.
