Busy bee

I’ve been rather busy lately. I just finished the last small revisions suggested by my agent. There were three rounds of revisions in all. As a result, the novel has been greatly improved. The characters have more depth, and the plot is much tighter, this without losing the essence of the story. For this, I have to thank my wonderful, sharp-eyed, agent, who has absolute faith in me as a writer, and is totally in love with this book, and doesn’t want to send the manuscript out until she knows she had done everything in her power to make it as perfect as possible. Yay!

At the same time, I’ve been working on a compempory fantasy. I knew the plot needed to be symplified; I thought it was too convoluted. But I couldn’t figued out a solution…until last week when it finaly hit me over the head. The solution was so freaking simple I can’t understand why I didn’t saw it before. Duh! On the plus side, this novel is now back on track with almost half of the first draft penned down.
