I'm in the throes of revising my middle grade novel HOODOO for my agent.
Oh, you didn't know I had an agent? I have an agent!
I did a big revision before I signed with Adriann, and now I am making some tweaks.
As writers, we are constantly revising, but it does feel strange to do it now, post-agent.
I'm looking at the manuscript a bit differently, trying to be as critical as I can. We do this, of course, when we are revising for our crit groups, but this somehow seems different. I can't really put my finger on it.
It feels like a real job now, as I write. I've always been pretty disciplined in getting words on the page, but now I wish I could do this full-time. I want to finish this book and move on to the next one. But I have to be patient. We all know how slow publishing is. Of course, there will be editor edits, too, if I am fortunate enough to get that far.
So if any pubbed authors stop by, how do you look at your revisions? Any advice? How do you look at your manuscript with fresh eyes when you practically read the next sentence in your head before you even get to it?
