So as I mentioned last week, revisions for Brimstone Soup/A Light That Never Goes Out/To Be Determined are underway.
To not freak myself out too much, I divided it up into Phases:
Phase I: Small changes, start to finish (editor cuts, etc.)
Phase II: Attack medium changes I was too chicken to tackle in Phase I
Phase III: Read through every single sentence and cut out unnecessary, wordy boring stuff in preparation for...
Phase IV: All the scary, hairy, overarching humongous stuff.
Maybe I'm being a little melodramatic.
For Phase IV, I am taking a page from Darcy Pattison's book, Novel Metamorphosis, in which she describes the Shrunken Manuscript technique. So I have 25-ish pages of teeny tiny novel words, a set of highlighters, and the wonder twin powers between me and my especially wonder-full editor.
So I am melodramatic and lucky. And getting back to work now!
