I've been dragging my feet on editing.  I mean, I'm chugging along on the little things - change a word here, delete a phrase there - but I've been skimming over parts I know need some major remodeling.  Case in point: Chapter Five.  I did the superficial edits and Mam'selle Doubt kept whispering in my ear.  She can really be a bitch sometimes, and more often than not, she's wrong.

This time?

As much as I hate to admit it, her snotty comments do occasionally turn out to be right.  Something was off with the flow, and the writing felt stilted, and...  let's just say this is the reason I keep her around.

Anyway, I tackled Chapter Five - determined to fix it once and for all.  Within moments, everything was falling into place.  Huzzah!  Take that you snooty French trollop. 

"You sheet.  Ah steell theenk you're a hack.  Go ahead, spend your day wasteeng time on your seelee storees.  Ah have shoppeeng to do."


Have any huzzah moments lately?  How are things in your world?


  1. I'm having it right now. It feels more like a serious bout of negativity though. I'll push through, eventually. ;)
