Musings

I've spent the past three days going over revisions of my completed manuscript. In the past three months the "phone book" has gone through about ten rounds of revisions. I'm more than ready to shuffle this thing off.

I understand that revision is part of all processes: writing, business, cows (not really, I just needed a third thing), but it sucks. Royally. Really. I'm not kidding.

During the final stage of working on this book, I've learned the following things:
  1. I hate hard-core editing.
  2. I have a fear of completion.
  3. I work best when someone's cracking a whip in my general direction.
  4. My cats are the best form of distraction ever.
