When you print out your manuscript and read it, marking up with a pen, it sometimes feels like a criminal returning to the scene of a crime.
1. No matter how many times an author finishes the first draft of a novel, they know this is only the beginning of the writing process… My first draft of The Secrets of A-Ria is a (handwritten) manuscript, in Russian. I’m going to type it in English and call it – the second draft. 😂 Starting: 20th of July.
This book has been written: a) without any plot; b) in third person point of view.
I added new heroes and killed two from the previous book (behind the scenes).
The novel is a young adult urban fantasy, metaphysical, absurdist.
The third draft is usually a final. 😶 Then beta and proofreading.
