I'm going through HEART OF STONE backwards. Ted said, "Is it better that way?" and when I gave him a dull-eyed stare he laughed and said, "You just hate that manuscript." At least this way I can see the words, which I could not the last time I went through it. I'm about halfway through it now, and it looks like the biggest changes are going to be in the last three chapters or so. The rest of it is mind numbing detail work, but nothing too bad so far. 'course, I have another half a manuscript to go through, so I may be speaking too soon. The vague plan is to get through this first pass today, then get up earlier tomorrow (oh god I was so tired) and do some actual real revision work. I think I'll start at the end, since it's going to take the most work, and usually by the time I get that far if I start at the beginning, I just don't CARE anymore. So better to start there, I think. Of course, that does mean I'm going to have to figure out how to make the end better *first* instead of putting it off til later...:)
Another 30 pages and then I think I'll take enough of a break to make some cooooookies. :)
ETA: between the defrag and the updates (mostly the updates, apparently), WMP seems to be working again. Thanks! Plus, cookies are in the oven now. MmmMMmmm!
