Oh, please, oh, please, oh, please!

Okay, I have moved the consummation scene from Chapter 12 to Chapter 17. I have revised in between, and smoothed the scene into its new place, including changing whose point of view it was in (not easy, that). I've moved the other three scenes that needed to be moved. I have altered some chapter endings, to make them more compelling.

And now, I'm printing up what I sincerely hope will be my last hard copy draft. My goal on the weekend is to read through the entire manuscript one...more...time...before inputting the many minor changes I know I'll make on that (oh, please!) final read-through.

Goodness. There's a lot to this writing thing. I've written one book and still have lots to learn.

I hope everything worked out Margaret. I have a whole new apprecation for editing. :)

Hi Henri! I'm still learning, too. It's a never-ending process.

And I've got to be one of the major revisers, but what can you do? That's just the way I work -- and always have. I used to revise my essays like this, too.
