Just what I was saying...

You know how I was saying I edit a lot? I've just spent two hours on two pages and I don't think I'm done yet.

Argh.

But here's the thing and the reason for the fussin' -- it's the first time the hero and heroine meet, and I felt there wasn't enough of what I call the "hubba" factor (as in, ooh, baby, that is one attractive man!) plus what I consider a necessity -- a hint that this guy is also something special apart from his looks.

Now, it's not like I haven't already fussed over this bit. Several times. But this is really my last crack at the bat after the editor's read the manuscript, so I'm (obviously) working to make that the very, very best it can be.

The irony? The editor didn't ask for these changes in this scene. This is all my own doing.

But hey, it's my name on the book, so...here's hoping the next two pages I'm about to edit (further on, but also a key moment in the story) go a little easier.

And remember, if you aren't going to the RWA conference in San Francisco, stop by tomorrow, Thursday and Friday for some Fun and/or Writing Special Blog Posts.
