Just an update....

Revision began on Tuesday night... 3 days later... I'm finally down to the last 7 pages (which I knew when I wrote these they would need some reworking...)

I have to say... I do NOT enjoy revision as much as writing the first draft. It just sucks fat, hairy, sweaty, gorilla balls. While I'm nervous about having the piece critiqued, I am also looking forward to it. I like what I have. I'd like to hear how to make it better.

My mind is also swirling the next piece... and having those characters whisper in my ear while I try to revise is very distracting!

Let the first revision begin!

So I am going to start the first revision tonight. I'm more than a little nervous about tearing apart my own work. What if I start to read it and discover I really just, don't like it? What if, I love it, and when I send it out to whoever reads its next, they don't like it? What if they hate it?

Now, I have put off doing the revision long enough... I convinced myself I would take a break over the weekend so that I could attack it would fresh eyes on Monday morning. Well, it's Tuesday night and I haven't started yet. So I'm off to start...

I'll leave you with just the tiniest of blurbs: Erin didn't give a second thought about slipping the old signet ring she found onto her finger... until she couldn't get it off.
