Part II in a Series - What Now? Okay, so I have a story and I’ve written hundreds of pages of a first draft. What now? Although I was pretty sure since I taught writing and had a degree in editing that I could offer a clean draft, I knew I still needed a professional to offer direction. A member of my writing group gave me the name of a directional editor. Enter Suzanne Kingsbury. It was late at night, a few weeks before Christmas, when I emailed Suzanne my manuscript draft.
