Know how I posted a few weeks ago saying I felt something was wrong with the book but I couldn’t see it? Well, 30K further on I can now tell you with assurance that the place where I thought I’d screwed up, I screwed up. I just wasn’t far enough past it to see how to fix it. Now I am, and instead of having 10K to go and anticipating finishing this week, I have 90 freaking thousand words to revise to some degree or another, and will feel lucky if I finish the stupid thing on time after all.

That sucks, Catie :( I'll keep you company in the war room during the mornings, when I have time.

I won't be in tomorrow. Mom's going to come sit on Young Indiana and I'm going to go somewhere else and focus really hard on the stupid revisions all day. :p But I'll probably see you Thursday.

That's pretty much the reason I'm ploughing back through my book. I got something in the wrong order. Groan.

Is that how you typically write a book? It's pretty much par for the course for me. Except I don't usually get 9/10ths of the way through and start thinking I'm home free before it happens. :/

Yep, it's pretty normal. But usually I notice sooner too. Drives me nuts, as for some reason while I like to rewrite, reordering brings me out in hives.

I basically hate rewriting. I like the end effect, but I hate the process. *squinchy face*

Commiserations! I hope the revisioning goes well tomorrow and that it's all resolved on time.
