Oh boy, that was hard. Now that I have been through the S&M practice known as "editing" I had to look pretty hard at The Next Book manuscript because I don't want to go thru that hell again. I workshopped the first 40 pages last year, and this year I spent a lot of time forcing myself to mull, reflect, re-read and then re-write several times, adding more plot, etc. I have two other new manuscripts in first draft-ville . . . I have to get back on those pretty soon but for now it feels good to have committed to, and polished, one.
