Okay, so I still suck at this blogging thing. Every spare minute I have, I work on my novel, so the blog tends to fall through the cracks. I want to document this process though, so here’s where things stand:

After I finished my last round of revisions (based on my November 2012 feedback), I took a couple more months to read back through the manuscript, smoothing and polishing as I went. Then I handed it off again to my trusted readers, which this time included a very talented author. I absorbed every one of their verbal comments in a feedback session and now have all their markups spread out on my table ready to dig in. I can’t wait to incorporate their invaluable feedback into my next round of revisions. It’s getting closer! I just wish I had unlimited time to devote to revisions and everything else it takes to craft a well written story that any agent/publisher would be happy to represent. I’ve decided if that takes selling my house and cutting back on my brain-frying job then that’s what I’ll do. And after all that, if I die without reaching my goal of becoming a published author, at least I’ll leave this world with no regrets about whether I gave it all I had. And that’s okay too. 🙂

Now, back to my novel, coming soon to a bookstore near you. 😉
