I feel much like an archaeologist myself. I’m still chopping vines and swatting bugs as I revise the jungle that is Waking Beauty. Right now, I find little beauty in the process. Underneath the detritus are good bones, but I really need my own spy satellite to unearth the best stuff. Sometimes I think it would have been easier to construct a brand new pyramid. *g*
It’s taken almost four weeks from the time I won the contest to where I am now—which is almost finished. There’s a ream of paper, a new ink cartridge and a priority mail envelope ready. Then we’ll see if WB is ready…or rejected.
Aside from adverbs, I forbid myself to ever type the word “blush” again. What’s your bad writing habit? What drives you crazy when you read?
I try to leave out the parts that people skip. ~Elmore Leonard
