AHHHHHH!

Well, it happened. I was zipping along in the revision and...oh oh. What have we here?

Chapter Nineteen, that's what we have. Chapter Nineteen, that needs a lot more work. Because of the changes I made. I need to smooth things out. I need to make sure the emotional tone makes sense. I need to take out some unnecessary information.

An hour later, I'm just about done with Chapter Nineteen.

Then comes Chapter Twenty, and the smooth sailing is definitely over. Some scenes are fine, but others...

Still got some serious work to do.

This is why, when people ask me how long it takes me to write a book, I'm sometimes tempted to say, "Forever!"

HUGS Margaret! I was hoping you wouldn't have to deal with any AHHHHHH! moments. :)

Finally picked up The Notorious Knight (was sucked into a product launch black hole previously) at a Wal-mart in Chicago last weekend (list price was $6.99, Wal-mart was selling it for $4.88, 30% off, ouch for margins).

Loved it. Can't believe what happened to Frederic. That was a shocker.

Thanks, Kimber! Glad you liked it. What can I say about Frederic? I went back and forth with him (good? bad?) before I finally settled on that path for him.
