The Joys of Revision

Posted: June 2, 2015 in Writing

My agent has asked for another revision of my novel, Strengthen the Things Which Remain. I am in a six-month time frame to work with a developmental editor to improve characters and dialogue. This will be my third major revision in two years!

I have been preparing for several days for the Florida Christian Writers Conference 2014 in Leesburg, Florida. Updating, sprucing, revising, planning, reviewing, blogging, printing chapters, printing synopses, editing my elevator pitch. I am ready. My goal is to network, network, network and to pitch my first novel, now titled Strengthen the Things Which Remain.

Shades of Tribulation Tide Rising

A foreshadowing of drones…

This article on the new advanced UAV is an example of what I think of as the “writing Zeitgeist.”  I find that before/after/while I write things in my novels there are often indications in the news and in other writer’s books that I haven’t even read or seen.  I wrote about drones based on insect forms two years ago and just a few weeks ago there was a news item about that being a direction for drones and mini-robots.
