Oh Yeah ... Blog

The final chapter of my NaNoWriMo novel underwent primary revision yesterday. I had to rewrite almost all of it from scratch because on November 29 I just wanted to have an ending down, and let me tell you, it was some of the worst writing I've accomplished in years.

Rewriting it was euphoric. I almost skipped my writers' group meeting. I barely finished the book I was supposed to read for book club at 6:55 PM (book club met at seven.) I made dinner in a flaming hurry and nearly burned the tortilla strips. And I didn't blog. (Or get on Facebook ... or clear out my Google Reader ... or call my sister back ...)

The plan now is to go back through the whole book and tighten up some things that even in the rewrite I just couldn't help speeding over. I'm excited.

  1. Didn't you also have the flu when you were finishing up your book last fall?

  2. Why, yes I did, George. Thanks for reminding me of the other good excuse I had for lousy writing. :D

  3. I would be truly honored if you gave your poetic advice on my blogs of poetry and follow them.

  4. Average Terran, thanks for stopping by! I hate to tell you this, but I know next to nothing about poetry. Apart from saying that I like some of your imagery, and suggesting that you drop the commas at the end of lines when they aren't necessary, there isn't much I can tell you. :)

    I also don't use the Google Follower feature for now. Sorry about that!
