There are very good vibes in the air around my writing friends. I can feel that this is going to be a year of good news on the publishing front. I've noticed a real dedication and commitment to writing consistently and treating it professionally. And it's contagious.
I wouldn't be surprised if we have several more published authors in our midst by the end of the year.
I'm determined to finish this Desire and get it out next week. Today was my self-imposed deadline for completing revisions but I'm still working on the last three chapters. I was discouraged yesterday when I read them over and realized how much work still had to be done. I'm thankful for my CP's comments on the first draft because they pointed me in exactly the right direction. More emotion. More emotion. More emotion. I'm going to make a poster up with those words emblazoned in big, bold letters.
Today I felt better about my story and started the revisions on Ch 10. I like the external plot in these three chapters. I just need to add more depth and characterization so the choices the characters make seem logical to the reader.
This weekend I'll be prom dress shopping with my oldest daughter. What fun.
