The Reluctant Scribe is finished. I think.
The planned changes have been made, new sections added, a final read through done.
In addition, I’ve rewritten the prologue to address some of my readers feedback, “We don’t know where you’re going with this, Ruth.”
Now it should be much clearer.
The standard advice is to make sure your writing is as good as it can possibly be before you send it off. Well, I’ve worked hard on this and I hope it is reasonably good. But “as good as it can possibly be” is nonsense advice. How do you measure that? How do you ever know? I could rewrite and rewrite sections of this book until I die.
Time to let it go and send it out there.

Well done Ruth, you’ve worked very hard on this …and you are quite right, if you don’t let it go, you’ll be on forever. From what I’ve heard, whoever takes it, will expect you to make changes anyway.
When you say sending it off, do you mean to agents? Or one of these critiquing services?
Hi Marie. I’ve already had several critiques, one of which I paid for. So time to send to agents now. Terrifying!
Thanks Alex, I certainly need a lot of luck!
Good luck 🙂
Ooooh! Best of luck! I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
