Writing progress

The urge to write seems to have returned.Today I emailed Moving a Mountain to my old friend bluehairsue (who now has a LiveJournal!). This entailed looking at the opening again.

Note to self: Do not revise anything immediately after receiving a critique. Ever. Allow some time to digest the comments before makng any changes and then allow some more time to elapse and revise again before sending the story anywhere.

Why do I say this? Because I had started to revise the opening last autumn, based on the comments from the fangs_fur_fey contest. Oh, dear. It was not better.

Anyway, I went back to the original version, tweaked it just a little and now it's been sent to Sue and is therefore also ready to go to another publisher -- when I've rewritten the synopsis...

I hate synopseses.
