Writing Week -- Tuesday

I've been on vacation and busy, busy. (with time out to be sick, then busy busy again.)
It's another one of those 'vacation weeks' where I move from my day job to my writing job.

So far I've managed to collate all the comments I got on my dog story that I took to the Novel Writing Workshop last month. It's amazing that so many different eyes caught the very same things. It's also amazing that the very same parts of the story that some people loved -- others hated and wanted removed.
I'll have to decide what advice to follow.

Almost everyone had suggestions for expanding the story -- which is good because it has to grow from 4000 words to 6000 or 8000.

Wednesday = revision time.
(Plus a bit of housework = spring cleaning)
Thursday, repeat.
Friday, repeat.

Isn't that always the way with critiques -- someone loves something that someone else hates. At least you evoked strong emotions. Remember it is your and Lance's story. I can hardly wait to read it.
