Just did a thorough revision of my novel, which bulked it up about 7,000 new words (so I’m at 92,000 now). More character development of Ella’s brother Trevor and her parents, mostly. Big shift in a plot point, too. Big thanks to Jen Cross and the rest of the Dive Deep Writing Group this winter, as well as Caroline Leavitt for her painstaking notes.
The journey isn’t over yet, but I feel proud today.
