Now the serious work begins, crafting this lump of coal into a shiny diamond. I already edited the first chapter according to the critiques I got from "1,000 Words," and it reads oh so much better. It hurt a little to get criticism (you mean you don't think my baby is perfect?) but wow, it made a big difference. I have to thank everybody for input. I'm going to set the whole manuscript aside for a few days now, but I'm just itching to start editing. What a great feeling.
So, we'll see if I can concentrate on my new projects this week to keep my mind off this one. Nevertheless, the excitement will tide me over several days. :-)
Now I have definite insomnia. I guess it is good insomnia, though? It won't be good insomnia when I finally fall sleep and drag my butt to Western Civ tomorrow morning only to keel over drooling when I get there.
