I'm through with a solid edit of the first first half of my medieval novel, and I've just caught myself wondering whether or not I like the story as I've devised it.
Is this writerly insecurity? Yep. At this point in the process, it's hard to say how well I've done, whether it will compel readers, and whether some harried agent will like it.
All I can do is look at it critically as I go, tweak, cut, and revise, as my inner editor sees fit. But I do plan to let a free-lance editor see it when (I think) it's done. Writing pal, Lyn, says it's an important story, one worth both the writing and the reading. I trust her judgment.
So. The second half is about to begin.
