I’ve had a couple of beta reader comments back and I have a LOT of work to do. My very first sentence didn’t even make it un-edited:
“Freya’s heart thudded in her chest.”
Reviewer’s comment: “unless she is an alien or an odd animal, where else would her heart be? Delete ‘in her chest’.” Good point.
I remember my first big edit of Medar took 18 months. I’m hoping I’ll get through this in a couple of weeks. Wish me luck!
