Nice, yeah? More pages. We can spread out a little. Thanks to the web magic of Identity Web and Photo, you shouldn’t have to do anything to your RSS feeds to keep up with new posts.
AND the nesting comment replies now actually nest, which will make it easier for us to talk with minimal confusion. So that’s super cool.
I’m pretty damn excited about this site. All shiny and new. Ooooooh….
I finished the line edits on Revolution at 11:51 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and sent them off to my editor, the mighty Meg Storey, right away so I wouldn’t be tempted to keep tinkering and tweaking and obsessing. Really, I could have tweaked the thing forever. A novel isn’t truly finished until your editor tells you to get your damn hands off of it and move on. Meg is reading it now (for like the sixth time. Editors are heroes), and I’ll either get to go back in for a little more tinkering or it will be time to move on.
I’m ready to move on. I’m restless. That novella is still nagging at me. It’s got to be what’s next.
In the two nights since finishing the edits, I’ve been twitchy, wanting to hide in my office and write because that’s what I’ve been doing for so many months. I’m having hard time rejoining the family, getting back into the rhythm of our life together when I’m not on deadline. To be honest, I don’t really want to go back to it. I want to be at my desk. I want to be writing. I’m dragging myself back out, though. Sitting down with those people I love. Trusting I’ll be fully present for them again in another day or two.
