Brief thoughts about revision

I have another request for revision for Claire's first book and I'm really excited about the possibilities.  The irony?  I've been working on a series of short stories taking place before chapter 3 of this book.  The revision request?  More showing/less telling in the first few chapters.

My brain hurts.  Where do I start?  I've been writing so much detail about this time frame and now I can probably lift a story or two for inclusion in the book and I'll be set to go.  But I have so many details to consider.  Plus?  My goal for the website is keep early stories and book separate.  So I need to pull details from stories not published on the site yet.  I can do this.  I can.

I'm moving this to my big sketchpad.

  2. Even though this is sticky, it's wonderful to be getting those revision requests. Hang in there!

  3. Thanks, Sidni! It's great to hear from you.
