Revise, Revise, Revise

A good blogging friend has given me great feeedback on Garlic. Some of it I really did know and didn't want to look at. *sigh*

So it's revisions time again. Not a major one like changing from 3rd person to 1st. But still - killing off a minor character and choosing one major theme to stick to and emphasize.

Still debating on which theme.

First order of business:
Time to go kill Scott. Poor kid. But that means I get to pull in stuff from the chapters I deleted when I fixed the geographic bouncing around. Never permanently delete such things. You might need them later. (Not adding back geographic bouncing - I just need a piece of this action.)

Second order of business:
Come up with one paragraph on Tommy's journey to help solidify his major theme.


  1. Go, Sarah! You know I'm a Garlic fan. I can't wait to see it on the shelves.

    I was bemoaning revisions to Rick Daley a couple of weeks ago and he repeated something someone told him.

    Real writers rewrite.

  2. I second Laurel.

    And--you can do this.
