After a bit of a break away from my futuristic manuscript I'm back editing it again. The problem with this manuscript - the futuristic readers say too much romance, the romance readers say not enough romance, too much world building. Add in some comments about backstory and introspection and my self-diagnosis becomes "This is one red hot mess".
So what to do?
The characters are great, the plot works - all I need to do is try to get the balance right and then this baby can go out into the real wide world. The plan is to keep working on this until the end of April and then reassess where I am up to.
Wish me luck.
