And so my friends, we have come to the end of yet another A to Zed. It has been a merry ride through the revision process - from the alpha to the omega and beyond. My last words for you is to please remember that revising is a two organ job. It takes both the brain and the heart to do a proper job. We have reached the summit of our climb and we can look back down the path which we have climbed and sigh a good sigh. ze·nith (zēnĭth)

[Middle Englishsenith, fromOld Frenchcenith, fromMedieval Latin, fromArabicsamt (ar-ra's), path (over the head), fromLatinsēmita, path; see mei-1in the Appendix of Indo-European roots.] Just to go through the whole megillah (see tomorrow's post for this definition) let me repeat: When revising you gain Altitude by descending to see the Boys in the Basement, they are so Coolwith their myriad of Details, helping you toEdit with Fortitude (and Grammar!). Help with your Idiosyncrasies can also be Juicy as you Kick-ass with the Lamé wearing Monkey Mind overly concerned with Numbers. Open to your Purpose, Query your Revision and Synopsis by Talking Out Loud. You will find it Uplifting as your Vigour and WordsX-ray and shows the Yin & Yang of you at your Zenith!
Please drop by tomorrow to see what I have to say about this year's experience.
