Gold Letter Day!

Well… it looks like I will NOT be finishing even ONE mss this year.

I heard from the very speedy editor at M&B this morning and she said lots of lovely and good things about my partial but has suggested revisions and another look at the partial before she requests any more.
Good thing is (as my friend Sue BT pointed out) she gave me ticks for dialogue, voice and sexual tension and there is no apparent problem with the conflict. The major issue with this mss was that I’d set it at Christmas time and that didn’t really add anything to the story. Also they’d like me to loose the boss/employee hook!
The revisions are DAUNTING. I’d be lying if I said they weren’t… but I know they are a chance. A chance to improve my mss to a publishable standard.
Revision letters are GOLD!
So I’ve ditched the full mss deadline and am giving myself another one – to revise (and improve) the partial and resubmit mid January.
I’ll keep you posted 🙂

  1. Rach – at least the wait wasn't so long, but then every wait feels long, doesn't it? Wow – you got some great positives. Good lukc with teh revisions. Every moment you spend on it will be well worth it.Suzanne – I've been told that Mercury is currently retrogade and Mercury rules communications and electronics, so don't expect the glitches to end before it goes direct again in Jan.
