I feel like I have been working to finalize my manuscript the entire time I have been writing it. One of the things I have learned along the way is that your first draft is not always your best draft. This is something that may have done me well to learn when I was a lot younger. It may have saved me a lot of headaches along the way. I am currently working on revising my fourth draft. I feel like my writing is getting better but it is hard to say when I get done revising another draft and I have pages full of revisions to make. I guess only time will tell if my writing has improved.
