I just hit send on my first round of revisions back to my editor! Now I’m back in sit and wait mode for round 2.
All in all, I think I’m really pleased with where everything stands. In this process and fixing many of his issues, I fixed all of the areas that I had my own concerns about initially. The overall story took a bit of a different path than I intended and, at first, I wasn’t sure if I liked it, but now I’m really good with it.
There will be a second round of edits and revisions, so I’m still a little ways out from officially finished, but everything feels so much closer to that point now. Hopefully, the second round goes well. I was stubborn in a few areas that I just wasn’t willing to change, so we will see what my editor thinks of those.
Now… I’m off to work on my holiday baking!
