View Full Version : Final Revision & Off to the agent!

05-04-2007, 11:58 PM
Pleased (and tired) to report last revision done on MS, and am sending my five copies to my agent this afternoon for distribution to several editors who've indicated some interest in the book.

It's amazing that, after some 16 years with the thing, we together uncover a simple change on page 1 that sets the rest of the story off better than anything I'd previously written.

Writing is weird.

Anyway - yay! now I can actually write something fresh (until an editor buys the MS and wants to undo everything my agent and I did.) Yay anyway.

16 years and a simple change on the first page?? Now that's amazing, and also a little scary. Writing is weird, you are right about that :-)

Good luck!
