Today, I finished tweaking the ending of my first MS, the one I’m entering in the Golden Heart. I deleted some stuff, added in new things and am now pretty happy with it.
I also went through the on-paper edits in my first 48 pages, the pages that are going off to the GH.
Next up? Updating the synopsis a bit to reflect the new ending and another paper copy of both it and the entry.
I’ll be killing a few more trees, but it’s worth it to be that much closer to getting this entry in tiptop shape!
I’m also wondering if I should get a preview of what to expect by entering this contest. I’d need to write a query letter, but I’ll need one of those anyway if I’m going to start looking for an agent.
