You’ve got a first draft coming together. And that’s great! But please, please don’t think that it’s a finished book. You’ve made batter. But is it a waffle? A pancake? A Chocolate Cake? Tempura? Maybe it’s bread dough, and it needs to be kneaded, allowed to rise, kneaded again, put in a greased bread pan, and left in an oven to come out and be slathered in soft butter and raspberry huckleberry jam just like mom makes. (Yeah, my mom makes homemade raspberry huckleberry jam. You may now be jealous.)
