One Chapter At A Time

I'm just about done the latest version of my opening chapter and I LOVE IT! I can't believe how much better this one is compared to the crappy one I entered in two contests a few months ago. I'm so glad my 3rd draft (or most of it) sucked so that I get to revise and make it awesome! Which it is, of course! Even my CP will agree with me when she gets it.

Now I just have to figure out the revisions for the rest of the manuscript. I know one thing, though. It will be a bumpy ride to get to "The End", but it will be SOOOO worth it when this puppy starts finaling in contests and gets me an agent. But more importantly for me, it'll be worth it when I know I've created the best story I could.

Awesome news! Keep going!

I'm trying, Elisabeth! Of course, right at this moment I'm procrastinating.

LOL, Christine. I do that well. Did you know Yahoo IM has GAMES you can play online with your writer buddies? Holy crap. That was one distraction I soooo didn't need.

Elisabeth, I had a solitaire (sp?) addiction in college. I would spend hours playing, go to bed thinking about the paper I hadn't written. Then when I couldn't get to sleep, I'd get back up and start playing again! I had to finally delete the game from my computer. Luckily I'm a computer idiot so getting to games now would be too hard for me!
