Like the cylons, I have a plan.

Kelley Eskridge, writer and editor extraordinaire, gave me FIFTY PAGES of single spaced notes this summer.  Last month, I finally finished responding to them for myself, creating a chapter-by-chapter outline of a detailed revision plan with all sorts of coded text (italics, bold, underline).   Now, I am going back through my novel, chapter by chapter, and EXECUTING on those revisions.

She cracked my book open like an egg!  So excited to whip it up with a fork and make it delicious.  There are some key changes for those who have read before.  The suggestions are entirely manageable though, and true to my vision.


Three chapters down, (updated here) fifteen to go.  I WILL finish this draft in the next several months, and start querying agents in late spring/early summer.
