Hi All - which is probably just me at this point - but I like to keep a bit here so I will remember what I was up to later. Yes, I use my blog as a log - how bizarre you say? Works for me.
I finished a big revision of Bright Angel last night. Today I started what I hope is the final revision. Hard to say but I am mostly happy with the balcony view - the structure, the plot, the characters etc... and now want to be down on the floor fine tuning the language, eliminating saggy words, tightening and brightening. I went at the first few chapters this morning but I'm mostly flexing my muscles and reading about this stage of revision. Getting ready - putting on my marathon clothes and doing lots of leg stretches if you know what I mean. Do I? Know what I mean? Yes! I'm sneaking up on it. I'm terrified. There. Now you know. Plus I have to work on all these short sentences. Yes!
My plan is to finish all of this including brightening up my synopsis and get it out to some agents by March 1st.
Here is a picture of me this morning - I took it, of course! Who'd you expect? Bella?
