Revisions progress

I am in the midst. Why oh why is there not a vaccine against stupidity?
I took a huge wrong turn and ended up with a plodding book. Luckily now, I think I made the correct choice and the book is becoming much better.

One of the simplest mantras is A HERO LEADS. A hero is proactive. A hero takes chances.
Why didn't I see the problems before?

It is going to be a much better book, far more exciting. It simply is a case of making sure the turns are right.

Good luck. It is so easy to take a wrong turn.

You didn't see it because authors often get too close to their books. (Mine has gone sticky and I'm not sure why... but I'm also very sure my ed will put her finger on it when she gets it tomorrow. I will finish this today, even if I have to stay up until 2am!)

You will be fine. You know the wrong turn - now you can fix it.

Thank you for the support.

Yes, I know what you mean Kate about being too close. It is why I sent it my editor and took them up on the offer to send the book at an earlier stage.
Editors can be very useful at discovering the sticky parts of a book.
