I love Caribou Cafe.
Between the writing and the editing, I have probably done about 1/3 of the work on my novel there.
I should list them in my acknowledgments.
The editing is going gangbusters now. I’ve made some changes to chapter 7 that make me happy. I wasn’t really digging the whole journey thing; I think I’ve punched it up a good deal with some help from my Naperwrimo buddy Katherine.
I reworked the descriptions of the Edgewood house and it’s much more of the feeling I wanted there, so
I can’t wait to finish the major edit… I’m about 1/3 of the way through now, I think. Once that’s done, I think I’ll print out my test copy on Lulu.com. That way, I can read it as a novel and search out whatever extra tweaks I need to make.
I want to have my manuscript revised and ready to go by April for sure… on the off-chance that one of the agents/editors I meet at the writer’s conference wants to see it. So it is definitely buckle-down time for me.
Meanwhile, my second chapter comes up for public review on critiquecircle.com tomorrow, so that’s exciting.
