My Dear Future Readers,
Since we began talking about rewrites in my previous two posts, I would like to continue this conversation. I have another character that required a few small rewrites.
So, this character is Darien’s best friend and I love both of them because in a way they are both similar.
How are they similar?
Henry and Darien are similar in their eagerness to save others. They are both only children in their families. And the most obvious of all is that they are both royalty.
Henry was royalty himself and his kingdom was attacked by Pond Water Prince (who you met in my previous two posts). Ever since then, his life was not the same. He had to serve the evil doer for five years.
I believe that Henry’s rewrites were the easiest I ever did. It was fun to see my “lost prince” grow. Even in the simplest things like the way his appearance was described. In fact, his appearance was the most fun to rewrite.
Because aside from the idea that Henry was under a spell, he was actually really handsome. I was actually kind of hoping you return him to his human self so that he would be handsome again.
The next important rewrite that happened for Henry was his conversation with his best friend, Darien. I’m sure that you will see the changes and appreciate them.
I put a lot of time into the rewrites I make because I want my future readers to like my book. I feel that the rewrites not only help my book, Book 1: Forbidden Love develop but they also help me mature as an author.
I feel that my ideas begin to change in a good way. The way my sentences are written and my descriptions are expressed is very differently than when I was writing this book in the first time. I’m proud of my work. I am excited when my edits turn out better than the original. My characters seem to be maturing with me which is a good thing. Even my editor is saying that my writing is improving.
I even see improvement with Darien’s character as,I correct Henry and Pond Water Prince’s characters. It is all connected in one and I’m glad that I’m doing these rewrites. I’m actually learning more than I thought with my edits.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.
