I gotz dem.

So Sunday night I turned in my revised MS to my editor! (*tingly feeling*) A week early, too.

I have to say that although there has been major changes to this book, they all seem to not only mesh with how I *see* this MS but also actually make it a stronger book. I'm super excited to see how the Amazing Editor likes it. Also a bit nervous, too!

I'm presently working on the Book That Won't Go Away...aka The Forester's Son. It's been almost two years since I finished the rough draft, and I've tried to edit it other times. You know how you have a particular picture of how a book should be in your head? I've got a very exact one of this book, and I've given up many times before. But this time feels different.

It feels like I can get it done this time.

So, YAY for me.

And you? Ever had a book like that?

Yay for edits!! I'm so glad you think it's a stronger book.

Riley's story is one of those I'm going to have to come back to over and over. I'd completely put it away about three months ago and this weekend I suddenly figured out a major plot change. Sigh. Eventually I'll get back to it. The priority now though is finishing the one that's already nearly done.

Heidi, Ha ha ha! You are right. But have fun going back to it! I will expect an angsty blog post, kk?? :-)

Jemi, it totally is. I am a wreck until I hear something. LOL.

Janna, I hope you're doing better. Still sending you lots of hugs. (((hug)))

Rat queen, I don't know what to do with you. But I'm gonna go all Black Death on your rats!
