I've been trying to re-write the first fifty pages of my first Fairview book for seven months now. I started out just wanting to fix a few things, make certain characters stronger, bring them into the book earlier, etc. Well, during that process, the story changed. And the characters changed (in a good way). And even the tense changed!
Ay caramba! What started as a minor fix turned into a full-blown rewrite. It has taken me seven months (granted not continuous), but I finally finished five minutes ago and sent it off to my lovely critique partner.
Speaking of my lovely critique partner, I got a really nice surprise when I checked out her blog post today.
Her blog is on the right "Writing from the Edge of Distraction"
And here is her post (all about me!)

And to answer her question, here is a photo of me (the one in the pink) 'gettin' jiggy wit' it'!
