By the title, I’m sure you’ve guessed… I’m back in revisions. It is one of my favorite things about writing a novel.
There is something completely other about having a novel in front of you and looking at it like a piece of clay, and then molding it into a different shape. Like turning a monkey into a hammer head shark – pinching and smoothing and tweaking and pounding…
And when you’re done, it’s usually better than the original incarnation... I say usually, because I think of revisions a little like plastic surgery and, well…. We’ve all seen Michael Jackson’s nose (and that weird cat woman).
So I’m here, revising away.
What are you up to?
