I’m at that point of exasperation where so many things are wrong with my manuscript that I don’t know where to start and i’m too scared to ask anyone for help.
I mean, it’s going to take a while to finalize and publish. Not to mention I need to raise funds or find an investor, but if I were… woudl you buy it?
I need an editor. Point blank. You know, editing your own story is difficult because yes you know there are mistakes, but you cannot figure out where they are and how to go about fixing them. I have had 2 people already tell me “Oh , you need to fix this” but they tell me a generalization and don’t give me the entire detail I need. They don’t highlight or note or mark or help me with any of that. One of my editors has claimed my story “too boring” for him to read.
So I need someone invested. Someone who, despite finding it ‘boring” to their taste, can still provide the support and structured quality I need for this.
