A Big Step Forward - I hired an editor!

If you've known me for some time, you'll notice that I enter NaNoWriMo every year. And even before that, when I was a little girl, I enjoyed writing stories. But I stopped for a few years, when school essays turned from stories to argumentative essays (which are fun in their own right, but not a story).

So after three years of NaNoWriMo, I started getting that nagging feeling that I'm making the same flaws in writing. WriteOn members are awesome, and I know that I'm not good at setting, but I figured that it was finally time to take the next step:

I hired a developmental editor.

This is the WIP's placeholder title and cover. Because I realise having
this two things really motivate me to keep writing. 
Because I have a finished novelette that I want to improve, and I heard about Alida from when she was on Rocking Self Publishing, I really, really wanted to hire her. I did get sample editing from another editor, the Skype call and feedback makes me feel that I'll really be able to learn a lot from her.

I'm so excited right now! I can't wait to get Alida's feedback on the whole novelette, seeing where my weak spots are and correcting them :D
