After a bunch of self-edits, beta reader edits, etc, I published what I thought was a tight manuscript about a year ago. Recently picked it up and read it after being away from the story for a long time. There was an obvious and vital change that immediately screamed at me!
The third chapter definitely should have been the first. Interesting how this wasn’t clear until I’d been away from the story for a while… well, now I’m gonna do some surgery on the manuscript and re-publish it. I really think this will improve the story.
