honor subbed

It’s out, it’s gone, it’s in the email, no taking it back now.  Revision wasn’t too bad, but took about three hours and a cupcake’s worth of sugar. Here’s thinking good thoughts.

Final fixes for Hunter, cutting some wordage… tonight is it.  Still love the story, and I think it’s better than ever.  Submission email goes out *tonight*.

Hunter done, again

Revision was a blast.   My dear sweet hubby took over kid duty at 6:30pm and I had all night to write instead of my usual hour and a half.  I spent four and a half hours on the revision yesterday, and gave it a quick proofing today, and implemented the final changes.  I think it’s good. I think it’s ready. :)  It’s awesome when things work.

Hunter again

Reworking Hunter.  I received a few crits back and it was rejected from the first market I submitted it to (with some interesting comments), so I figure, why not, let’s make it better.

That pesky first scene a few someone’s commented on, turns out didn’t live up to its potential because the finale didn’t really zing.  I’m adding zing. And my hero, Daymar, misses a huge opportunity to confront his commanding officer who is essentially his role model.  Adding that.  Then there’s a mysterious chameleon that was neat in the first version, but should’ve gone by the wayside when the griffon did about four revisions ago.

I’ll find another home for the lizard; this just isn’t it.

editing

Black violas edit is underway; the new opening rocks.

Received Hunter back from a submission, no luck there.  I want to revise it again before I send it out, but I need to finish Black Violas first.

Hunter revisions

Continued.  Slow moving, but forward moving so I am glad.  I realize two things now: I really need to learn more about commas (what seems right one day, seems wrong the next and vice versa), and that I need to do something with the immaculate white cat I mentioned on page three.  Hmph.

Hunter’s Honor

It’s done.  Done and posted for crit.  The brain is dead, the fingers exhausted.  The eyes?  Quite bleary.  But the story is great.  I hope it reads as smoothly as I think it does, and I hope I solved all the story issues.  We’ll see what my critiquers and time have to say.

On that note, I’m taking the day off writing tomorrow.  I might do some market research for Hunter.  Oh yes, and the beast clocked in at 4650 words.
