This book has been a journey that has taken a lot longer than the perfectionist in me has expected! I have finally finished editing my third rewrite. The editing involved taking the 80,000 words I had written and seeing what fit into the plot of my book, what needed to be cut, and what needed more development. I have a bullet point list of what I need to develop.
Would you like to help me?
My book is about a woman who struggles with anxiety. I know my own struggle with anxiety, but I don’t want the main character’s experience to be one-sided. My goal for this book is to have a familiar character that encourages those who struggle with anxiety that they are not alone.

Now that I’ve taken such a long time to write this book, I want to make sure I do it right. I want to put more research into the book, to show that I have fully invested in this story. I want to find just the right setting, just the right character development, and just the right ending to comfort a hurting soul.
Thank you for your help in my endeavor, whether through prayer, encouragement, or providing feedback.
