Ever since the SCBWI Big Five-Oh summer conference, I have been the Madwoman of Revision. Lots of adhering to red ink exclamation points. Filtering critique. On not just my manuscripts, but synopses, loglines…
Whenever I’m convinced my writing is goodtogo I set it aside for a minimum of 24hrs, then revisit.
I wasn’t always like this–patient with my work, exercising/cultivating my critical 3rd eye (she is multicolored and progressively laser-ish). I used to shout, DONE, and submit. Heh heh……
Also recently cultivated? A passion for Tulsi Sweet Rose tea.
Yours in revision and reliable eyes,
