Stop the presses!
The result of a conversation with the expert I consulted to check my novel manuscript for any errors in legal procedure and language means a far more significant revision than I was anticipating before it will be ready to show a publisher. I could view it as a major setback, but I can’t help feeling excited about the new dramatic possibilities. Some awfully good writing (if I may say so) is going to have to go, but maybe I’ll be able to use it in some other story some day. Or maybe I’ll just have to post it on my blog!
