Got My Revisions

I got my revisions from my editor yesterday. I'll admit, at first I panicked. Closed down my computer and called it a day. But this morning, I started digging in. Began wtih the easier line changes first, of course. But as I'm working through those, I'm also marking places where I'll be making changes for the broad revision requests. It's an interesting process. I think the book will end up being more streamlined and focused. I hope I can do it justice.

How about the rest of you who have just recently gotten your first ever set of reivions? What did you do?

Um, do I get to comment since I don't have revisions—yet. (wink-wink)

You can do it girl, and you will do it justice. You already have. It's an awesome story!

I remember when I got mine. I did the same thing. I had to shut down the computer and walk away for a bit. After I thought about it, I realized that I could live through it, and it would make the book so much better. You will do a great job on those revisions. After you are done, you will be proud of what you achieved. You can do it!
