I'm still slogging through the POV edits and have managed to sidetrack myself. You see, my poor Garlic MC is bouncing around a bit too much geographically. That means killing 4 chapters and replacing them with 2 or 3 new ones. And then another edit through the rest of the book to fix the references to those lost chapters. But that also means I'm almost done with major revisions. At least for now.

And no, I did not make the Labor Day deadline. I could've pushed to do it, but it would not be my best work and I'm not ready to shut down an editor by submitting this one too early (again).


  1. Sarah-- I am glad that you didn't push it.

    I've found the revision process to be unpredictable, and that it's better to go with the flow, even if I blow all my deadlines.

    It sounds like you are making great progress.

    Won't it feel great to type "The End"?

  2. Ah, that elusive ending. Yep. Getting to the point where I'm ready to send this puppy back out into the world will be wonderful. Then I will be hoping for a new round of edits - ones based on what my new agent and/or new editor desire, whoever they may be.

  3. Ah...the old "This will make it better but then I have to fix everything after and maybe a couple of things before" gambit. Nice!
