Lets talk REVISIONS!

I was told to just send out what I'd written (ACK).

I was advised (by smart, writery people, mind you, not just random people) to just suck it up and push it out the door.


I. Must. Revise.

I'm doing my best to revise, not rewrite, but just.... revise.
I need to stick to the things I know I need to look out for:
  • consistent age of character (yes, I changed her age four times, what of it?)
  • consistent story line (as in, does it make sense?)
  • reads correct for targeted age group (re: I changed her age four times...)
  • is actually decent
I started the revisions and to my not so much joy, I discovered something.

It is very hard to revise one story and write another when you have a day job.

The day job does get in the way.
