I’ve reached the “be careful what you wish for” part of the writer’s dream
So still no contract, although I know there’s much negotiating being done behind the scenes. I’m sure my agent and editor will tell me what I need to know. ::sigh::
Got my first-ever serious edits last Friday–just as a) my computer died, b) we went up North without internet for a week, and c) I got a cold. Thank God for chocolate or I’d be a real mess.
I’m almost finished with the cutting and new plot line part. The problem is, there are great swaths of the book that aren’t funny. I don’t mean boring, I just mean jarringly different from the rest of it. It’s like it’s written in two different voices. So first I’ll write the plot and then I’ll go back and make it funny.
That’s a plan. I like plans.
