If you're writing your book, even if you're FINISHED with it....even if it's like, 800,000 words long (and seriously, if it's that long you are sooooooooooooo not finished)- back to the point- if you're at that point, and it suddenly occurs to you that something might not be quite right, or you realize that you could make the book a zillion times better but it would require a major re-write....


DO NOT tell yourself that the book's "good enough."

Because if you do, you'll end up with a request for a full from an agent you're in love with, and you'll spend the next four days frantically re-writing around the clock (cracked out on cheesesticks and cherry coke zero) because you won't be able to get that re-write idea out of your head and you won't want the agent to read anything until you get it re-written.

I'm not even sure that last paragraph makes sense, but I can't even think clearly anymore. I need sleep and a shower.

About Megan

Visit my website! meganwhitmerwrites.com

Loves kissing scenes and funny t-shirts. Knows the words to most 90s rap songs and entirely too many broadway musicals. Talks too much. Laughs too loud. Doesn't dance nearly enough. Swear words make me giggle. If we meet, I'll probably hug you.

This blog is for my writing news, but I'm sort of a wanderer so you'll probably hear a lot about my family and food too. That's sort of my life in three words: Family, food, and writing. Oh, and t-shirts.

My young adult novel BETWEEN will be published by Spencer Hill Press in July 2014.
