Title goes here.

Look at me! I'm revising!

I realized a few days ago that the reason I'm not really happy with Blood and Taxes is because the ending is all wrong. Or rather, the ending is right, but the build-up to the ending is wrong. Someone locks Ana in a closet. Someone else helps her escape. Whee!

So I'm rewriting it and I'm mostly done already. Ana takes a much more active role (which is something I was concerned about from the start) and it's also much shorter. Hurrah for brevity!

I think I'm ready to plunge deeply into my next project. I've been picking and pecking for months and months, thinking I was just being lazy. I think I was just recharging. I mean, I wrote two full-length novels and a novella between September of last year and February of this year; I think I'm allowed some recharge time. But now I've got that itch to really jump in and write write write. Thank goodness!

Hurray for the itch. If I'm not watching them careful my characters have an awful habit of letting others do the work for them.

Glad the itch is back. Get to it!

Cate--my characters have been standing around with their hands on their hips, waiting for me to get off my butt and give them something to do. :)

Aaron--Yeah! Starting today and can't wait!

Huzzah for recharging the batteries of creativity!

I think I need fresh batteries. Mine take way too long to recharge. :)
