I've been mostly quiet around here because I've been non-stop revising. As always, the process has been a total, well, you know, with me being EXCITED! ABOUT! NEW! STUFF! and then me being Eeyore-depressed and frustrated and feeling like I will never, ever finish this and why did I even write this book in the first place because it sucks so very incredibly much and so do I.

As of about an hour ago, I'm having an up feeling like I will finish. Eventually. I still have one new scene to write. (I hand-wrote a rough draft last week, but it's going to take a lot of work to get it up to par.) After I finish with that, I'm going to read the whole draft aloud to myself to catch errors and make additional changes that come up.

I've made some very major discoveries during this revision. For instance, the character who I thought was the protag's best friend actually isn't. (No, seriously. I just figured it out yesterday, and I was the last to know.) I also learned why I had such a hard time writing query letters during my agent search: I didn't actually know what this book was about back then.

Whoa, right?

I know.
