This is what I wrote to my mentor Angela yesterday.
"Well, I have finished outlining and inserting notes and making more notes. In the process I've found a few more mistakes, had some wonderful ideas and made more notes. Today I'm settling in to begin the actual process of rewriting. I feel like I've got a handle on how to do it, somewhere in between your process and the One Pass process of Holly Lisle.
"I'm actually excited to finally get to this point as I've fallen back in love with my novel. I intend to go slowly so I expect it may take me a while to finish. If I have any questions I'll get in touch with you. In the mean time, I will be elbows deep in my keyboard.
"Thank you so much for getting me to this point (really my eyes are tearing up it means so much to me.)"
So, my dear Random Readers, I'll be gone for a while. Oh...I have a few Random Though Thursdays already scheduled to be posted, but other than that, I won't be lurking or leaving comments.
I'm going...going...gone deep into Revision Land.
