Four years ago (yes, you read that right - four years!) I took a version of it to a conference on craft where I received tremendous feedback. I came home and re-worked it and revised it and . . . put it away. Every few months, I take it out, determined to make a go of it . . . only to put it away again. And again.
This Fall, I'm attending an advanced level of that same conference . . . with the same novel idea.
Just the thought makes me cringe with embarrassment. Where has the time gone? What have I done with it? Have I totally wasted that first amazing opportunity? Will I end up wasting this one? Should I work on something different and bring those pages?
I'm not ready to let this novel go. I'm giving it these next few months and this conference to make sure it has teeth. (The story, I mean. The characters have enough teeth to . . . well, never mind.)
Wish me luck!
I'm co-hosting April's IWSG, along with Megan Morgan, Christopher D. Votey, Viola Fury, Christine Rains, L. G. Keltner, Patricia Lynne, and Rachna Chhabria. Fingers crossed I do Alex and the rest of the team proud!
