Coming out of the revision cave, finished manuscript in hand. A manuscript that still needs work and tinkering and mulling over… but one that’s complete at 70K, and that’s so much closer to what I want it to be.

So yes, there’s more to do. No surprises there: I am a reviser by nature. In the middle of bookstore readings, published book in hand, I have to fight the urge to recast sentences. But this is a good place to be.

I’ve made some blackberry-peach pie to celebrate. And now I can’t wait to catch up with all of you!

What’s your favorite way to celebrate a WIP milestone?
