A first time authors blog.

I want to learn how to write a brilliant blog.

I am trying?

I had just finished the manuscript, and thought it looked pretty good when I submitted it for editing. Now I know why they use a red pen, all the mistakes look glaringly obvious when circled or underlined in red. Learning how to accept rejection was hard, and I understand that is a normal reaction. However, the words of encouragement at the end the letter seemed empty and hollow by the time I finished the third rewrite. When the manuscript was first submitted, the story flowed and it was easy to read. After reading the third edited version, parts of the story have changed, and some parts are now out of context. I was told it is essential to have your manuscript professionally edited, to ensure the writing flows and it becomes more readable. My instincts told me the first rewrite was poor, after the third rewrite, I clearly need to find a new editor.
