Summer vacation starts in a little less than 30 days. I need to focus and finish my FINAL revision so my children can have a summer worth remembering.
PB has been my life for the past 1 1/2 years and it's time to let her go. This manuscript has gone from first person to third person to alternate voices. The beginning has changed countless times. Darlings have been loved then killed, scenes rearranged, characters evolved, plots thickened, the story transformed and I couldn't be more pleased.
My fantastic critique group has seen these changes and their feedback ever encouraging. If you're not in a critique group, why not? It will help you in so many ways. Still shy? Check out my critique series. Want more in-depth information? Writer pal, Becky Levine, has a critique book coming out in January, that sounds perfect.
I am so grateful to my group. I just received their latest comments, and man, am I ever ready to finalize details.
So, it's time to get to work.
If you'd like to have a support group to help you through the month of June, come on and join in the Summer Revision Smackdown with organizers Holly and Jolie. Hey, if they can get me to write 5,000 words in a day, I KNOW I can finish my revision.
It's time to get serious and focus. You can do it!!
