Still Editing? Here ya go.

So, I'm still editing the first draft of Song of the Muse. I've barely put a dent in it. Embarrassing, I know.

But I did find a couple of great links to help you, if you're in the same stages of your journey. (If not, just bookmark it. )

Author Natalie Whipple was kind of enough to compile a list of her common first-draft mistakes.

and here are 6 Ways to Ensure All Your All Your Scenes "Play". Basically, a short checklist to make sure each scene in your novel doesn't put the reader to sleep. Always a good thing ;)
