Yup, consensus is revisions! Lucky me! Well, I have to say, it was nothing I didn’t expect. When I wrote the partial I thought it was the best I’d ever done – certainly better than the last one – but of course, over the space of five months, you learn. And once you’ve learned, you realise that in fact you could have done better. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
Anyway, so my choices are revising or subbing something new but since they’ve given me the option of revising, that’s what I’m going to do. It’s an important skill to learn and I want to show them that I can do it. However, I do have a tendency to go to extremes – I’ll either completely rewrite so it’s a new story, or I won’t change it enough. Argh!! Somehow I have to find a happy medium.
So if anyone out there spots a happy medium, can they send it on to me??
