Yup. This has been bothering me for a while now but in a good way. I wanted to let it sit a while, stew in my brain juices, but enough. Enough! I'm starting rewrites tomorrow and I'm so happy about that. I already have a list of 15 things that need to change and I haven't even started yet but goodness my hands are shaking with the excitement of finally getting to it.
So what's your take on Ladies Who Critique? I love it! I've met some awesome people and I've already sent out two of my manuscripts. The YA went to Tracy Rohlfing and Ladonna Watkins. If not for LWC we wouldn't have met. The best part is I'll get an honest opinion from them and they don't have to worry about offending me because we don't even live on the same continent. That and I know how to take criticism. I want to know what's wrong so I can fix it. (Damn the continent thing, now I can't TP their houses if I don't agree with what they say) I'm kidding. I sent the UF to Kate Hawkings and I'm glad to be getting a female's view on it. I'm looking forward to the critiques, no matter what they bring.
My TBR pile is coming along pretty nicely.

That's it for now. What are you reading and where are you with your writing?
