In the post!

Yes, I've mailed my revision of Project Sparkle to my tutor.

The last few days were a scramble. I ended up really taking apart chapters 1-2, re-analyzing and restructuring them. In the end I was happy with those chapters, but I lost a sense of all the previous work I did. I would have loved another day to read over the entire draft. Oh well. I've got two more months to make the changes I know need to be made.

I'll meet with Julia in September. My hope? She loves it, thinks all the changes work, and I can go into smaller scale revisions, working on character development, voice, setting details, etc. Perhaps revise chapters 1-2 a few more times, just for fun.

But we'll see. For now, I'm giving myself a brief break. The blog might be a bit quiet.

Thanks for all of your advice and support these past several weeks!


  1. Congratulations! Lots of people were rooting for you! (We'll take credit for sending positive energy your way!)

  2. Yay! I think this calls for a cookie celebration. :-)

  3. Aw, thanks, both! A cookie celebration sounds like a fantastic idea!

  4. Awesome. You deserve a break after a project. :)

  5. Thanks, Medeia! I think I need to get back to work now, but have been really enjoying this time off. =)

  6. I've returned to tell you I have a blog award for you.
