I read a blog post a few days ago, that made me laugh out loud. It basically said that if you are sick of reading your manuscript for revisions, then what makes you think parents and kids will want to read your manuscript night after night. This really stood out to me. When I am writing a new manuscript, I have to make sure that I love it enough to read it over and over and over again. I have to love every sentence, every word. I have to love the dialog and everything else. It is not enough to like it. I have to LOVE it. I have to be willing to read it so many times that I have it memerised. I have to love it enough to still laugh and smile in all the right places. I have to love it enough that I can't wait to get it out and start on another round of revisions. Basically, I have to have a lot of love for my manuscripts.
So make sure you're not sick and tired of your manuscript. Make sure you love it enough; because chances are, if you do, so will your readers.
