Revisions!

I got my revisions for Foretaste of Forever today and couldn't wait to dive in (after I'd had a bit of a squee with the witches of course!) My editor had a few questions about various aspects and I've really enjoyed delving deeper into my characters world. She also had a great suggestion for the beginning and I can't wait to get stuck into that, although it will probably have to wait until Monday when I'm alone in the house (more steamy sex is required and my son has this scary tendancy to creep up behind me when I'm on the computer - not something I want him doing when I'm trying to write hot!)

Have fun with your revisions! I enjoy seeing my work through other people's eyes during the revision process. I'm sort of packed and ready to go...sort of.

Revisions-- sounds like it will be a phrase I call 'daunting fun'.

As I read your post, I just got this clear vision of your son sneaking up on you while you are writing the hot parts-- It was like a little story in itself! Funny. But I do understand. I save my hot writing until I am totally alone.

It must be starting to feel real for you now, Christina. How exciting!

I hope your saucy writing is going well. There's no way I could write those bits with anyone else in the house. Even my darling beloved!

Shelley I agree - it's taken me somewhere I'd never thought of before. So far I'm having fun :)

Kaye, your vision is *exactly* right. I have to angle the sofa so I'm isolated in the corner of the room now!!

Cath is it feeling real now I have a deadline. I'd just got to the saucy bit today when I had to pick up my son from school. So tomorrow I start the hot stuff!

Christina - I've got edits soon too and I know they aren't major so I am looking forward to them. I think you look on a book with new eyes when the ed finally says : "yes, on the whole, I love it'. You really enjoy getting stuck into the fine tuning.

Big edits can be very stressful! But these sound like (almost) fun.

Phillipa, yes it's definitely made me look at this one differently. My editor liked my suggestions so I've got my fingers crossed she likes the finished thing too!!
