I’ve missed posting the last two weeks because I’ve been deep into rewrites and revisions, immersed in the story and characters, in a race to get it to my agent so she has time to read it and send comments before she goes on maternity leave. Nothing like a pending delivery to motivate me :-).
I had planned to have a video of my book event for CLICK HERE up the second Thursday, but alas it didn’t happen. It will be coming soon, though.
I still can’t believe it’s true. After 4+ years and several transformations, my novel, FADE AWAY, is in my agent’s hands for the second time. It has a new focus and a new title, which I’ll share after I see what she thinks about it all.
It’s a fascinating experience to grow along with a story, to find the changes you see in yourself reflected in your character in some ways or maybe vice versa. It’s also incredible how invested we can become in our stories. I felt drained emotionally after I finished and didn’t make the connection until the next day, realizing that I had basically gone through what my character had. Whew!
I did get in a mini happy dance, though; you know I’m all about celebrating every milestone.
Would love to hear how you feel and/or what you do after finishing a draft, revision or rewrite if you care to share.
Yippee, Denise! Well done…now relax, rest and get ready for what lies ahead.
Thank you! And yes, I do need to get ready for more revisions before we are able to submit :-).
Woohoo! Hooray for you!!!! Can’t wait to see it in print.
Thank you! Thank you! I can’t wait either, though we’ve got much of the journey still ahead. But I BELIEVE. It will get accepted :-)>
