My posts may be sparse/absent for the next week or so as I’m very absorbed in revising Herbert. It’s going well so far, and my goal is to have the revisions finished by the 15th so I can send it out to beta-readers. I’m ahead of schedule at the moment, so huzzah for me.
But really what I want to say is that I love revising. I know it’s supposed to be the real dirty work of writing, and some people make it sound like it’s akin to gouging your eyes out, but revisions make me happy. It’s so satisfying to take a string of words, or a paragraph, or a chapter, and rework them in a way that sings. Because it’s never what you say, it’s the way you say it. I hope to say things in such a way that people will remember.
