The fam an I have been sick lately. And with this many people in the mix, that makes for a long recovery.
I thought I was over it enough today to go out and take a swing at the ongoing Jeep saga.
I thought poorly.
Now I'm about hacking up a lung and I've got that flu ache thing. You know what I mean, right? Where your bones themselves feel "yucky", like that green stuff you've been trying to keep out of your lungs is living in your skeleton.
We've got a few more major issues going on now too, which I won't gross you out with. Suffice it to say 2016 is off to a rough start.
Hey, though! I did get some pro-level feedback back, and about 2/3 of that is implemented.
(I can't mention any names without permission, of course, but) it's a very, very, VERY good thing when a professional editor starts out
First and foremost, I want to say that I think this is a great story. (And I'm a hard sell, so I don't say that lightly!) It's sophisticated and multifaceted, and you've created a fun and engaging world populated with memorable and exciting characters. I'm excited to hear where this book ends up, and I'm already wishing for the next part of the story!I'm always one to be down on myself and think the worst. "Do I even know what I'm doing?" "Is this really any good?" "Will anybody even like it - or be like 'yeah, whatever'?"
This news went a long way to temper my natural pessimism.
Now it's time to push it over the hill to get it published.
After I sleep off this germ.
Live YOUR adventure!
