I emailed the manuscript to the publisher. Now it is a waiting game.
It has been a journey and half to get it ready and to the point that gives it a fair chance of being accepted.
What have I gained from the editing process? Perhaps a better understanding of point of view. I won't say it is perfect but definitely a bit better. It seems I head hop a fair bit. To be honest I think it adds to the character development and depth if you can give a fleeting comment from another's character's perspective of the character involved. After all, do we really see ourselves the same way as others do? However, this pulls the reader out of the story, even though you may say Character B said this and put his thoughts in the same paragraph.
I guess that is a pitfall when you live and breathe characters. You do head hop between them. First you are in one character's head, and then you are in another character's head, as you develop the scene and their interactions. Apparently, you are suppose to do an entire scene from one's character's perspective only.
Like I said: I'm getting my head around POV but I'm nowhere near perfect.
Anyway, I've done the best I can, so now it is over to the publisher and the Powers-that-be.
In the meantime I'm working on my second manuscript.
