I started editing my novel today. I did a bunch of global search-and-replaces to change a bunch of character names, so it’s easier to distinguish the characters from each other. I also printed it out so that I could read it more easily in hard copy, and I’ve read up through chapter 3 so far, catching typos and awkward phrasing, and identifying a few areas that I need to beef up. I already knew I was going to need to rework chapter 1 to change the viewpoint character, but now that I have reread it I realized that it’s really talky and not a lot happens. I need to fix that, since a boring first chapter is a bad idea for a book.
