Check. Check. Check. I'm getting my revisions on. But it's taking for-evah. Gah!
I'm in Revision Hell. *deep breaths*
Okay, so that's a slight exaggeration. Things aren't that bad. Really. I enjoy revisions. Seriously. Unfortunately, it's taking me a lot longer to whip this chapter into shape than I expected. First, I struggled with some dialogue. Then I realized I needed more details -- just a wee bit more movement to ground the characters in the scene. That took more days than I wanted. I wasn't trying to make the words perfect. Honest. I just needed to put them where they belonged. Once I did that, I moved on.
The biggest challenge has been the opening for my heroine's POV. It took me a whole lot of brain power and several drafts before I finally wrote an opening I could live with. That happened Monday.
I had hoped to surprise my CP with two completed chapters when she returns from her beach vacation this weekend. Yeah, that's not going to happen.
Revisions are hard. I need chocolate. STAT.
