I need some help My ms has been rejected left right and centre, even though the agents have said it has great potential. I have 4 beta readers but none of them have picked up the errors that the latest agent has flagged up. It appears that the agents don't have the time to do full edits now so I don't know what to do with it. Would anyone be able to help? Cash flow is an issue at the moment IYKWIM
Yes, I can see that where you are at the moment is a horribly frustrating place to be! Do you think your writing skills are moving forward, though? Because I bet all that rewriting-followed-by-more-rejection, even though it feels like it's just getting you back to square one each time, is improving your understanding and mastery of the writing process no end.
I think so. It's a case of 'doh! Did I really do that' most of the time. It would help if they were pointed out before though IYKWIM. Every time I edit it there's a lot less to do so I'm hoping that it shouldn't take too long, but then again the next agent to read it may pick up on something. I'm also very aware that I'm running out of agents to sub to. I'm hoping the next book doesn't need as many rewrites.
