I resubmitted - time to sleep!

I made it through the revisions - yay! I cut two entire chapters from the beginning and moved a major part of the story up to the front and trimmed a few things down and I'm thrilled with it all. Thanks to Sara, Nova, my sister Jenn and especially Jamie (the queen of line editing) I have a brand spanking new partial. (and of course the dead on input from the expert agent) It wasn't easy but it was worth the loss of sleep and hours of staring at my laptop screen to get there. The fact that I sent it at 1:30 am says it all.

Now I can get back to blogging and seeing the light of day. Just kidding about the light part but definitely not the blog. I can't wait to get back to my daily rants. Besides I have a lot of 'lists of 30 things' to catch up on. I'm missing my daily reads of the blogs I follow too. It's funny how content you get with a routine. But I knew I had to make some sacrifices to get my partial done this week. I thought it was best to get my work back to the agent while she still remembered me. Now it's on to getting the entire thing in tip top shape, which shouldn't be too bad based off the feedback I've bad from those who have read it all so far. At least I don't have to do it in a week!
