Because of the critique, I have re-tackled The Rock Walker and am restructuring the 2nd chapter completely. I made the appropriate changes to the first one, which is really one of those dreaded prologues that make everyone antsy, but the 2nd chapter needed a total re-haul. Gwen is here as it is a Tuesday and I got right in and went to work. It isn't over yet but I like the direction I am going in now. With The Rock Walker the bones are all there - but there is lots of tightening and polishing to do. I think I can do it in pretty good time.
Hoagy did a runner last night - he's home after about 15 hours of freedom. Sleeping.
Now where does this leave my revision of True? I'm nearing the end of this story revision. I made a great breakthrough yesterday so I think I'll have to divide my time as much as possible between the two manuscripts. I don't want to lose my pacing with True and I don't want to ignore The Rock Walker when I'm inspired to get at it again. If I can stick to my two hours a day plan, I think I can do this. Especially since I left weekends free...canning will have to be an art I still don't know - at least until next year.
If you haven't gone over to see Clarissa - go over and check her blog out - you won't be sorry. Tell her I sent you.
