My agent (gosh, that sounds cool, doesn't it? My AGENT!) sent me her notes on ZENN DIAGRAM and it's time for revisions. Her comments are insightful and her suggested changes will definitely make my story better but ... this feels almost as overwhelming as actually WRITING the novel in the first place. It's not that the changes are so huge or difficult ... it's just the challenge of trying to tweak and expand and edit with a fresh eye. I have read this manuscript many, many times and trying to look at it anew is almost impossible.
I've made some good progress so far, but I've been kind of stuck for the last week. Hoping that tomorrow I can buckle down and try to finish up.
A few more people have read my manuscript (my mom, and some of my kids' friends and their parents), and I've been getting positive feedback, so that's encouraging!
Anyway, nothing too exciting to say. I just wanted to give a quick update for those who are wondering where things stand. Thanks for encouraging me and following my progress!
