Working away

I have been busy doing an online workshop on Using Historical Detail to Create a Vivid World this week. It is proving interesting as I am having to put my thoughts on paper.

I am also nearing the end of my revisions. I think angels will sing when this book finally gets accepted. I do know that it is a far stronger romance now. I have gone back to basics and reread Writing Romance for Dummies. It is funny how much stands out to me now that I have had so many books published since the last time I read it.
One key phrase about sexual tension -- make it obvious. I might know the chemistry and the desire is there, but does the reader?
I am going back and layering it in.

The devil is really in the detail!

That bit about tension... yup. That's what I've got to layer in right now, too :o)

Good luck with that last push!

As Kate says - good luck with the last push. It seems a lot of authors are being hit with masses of revisions right now! BTW - W R for Dummies is on my keeper shelf. Lesley W is a *genius* IMHO of course! Caroline x
