Shindarin Rising: The Editing Process Continues

I just got back the advice and critique on my draft. So...the editing process will continue as I take the advice to heart and begin to focus all the time I can spare into making the book longer, trying to connect a few dots that weren't clear or realistic, and try to bring the story and setting to the forefront. This would not seem nearly as hard to do if I could devote more of my day to these tasks. It is one of those moments when a fledgling writer, trying to get into the game, wishes that they were already writing for a living. Then, balancing time between a day job and writing would be a moot point since writing would be the day job. Alas, I am not making my living off of my writing as of yet. I have to share my day with the day job, school, the ins and outs of life, and my writing. However, there seems to be a bit more direction in the editing phase, so the process moves forward and the balancing act will continue. Thanks for reading!
