I'm not much of a panel-goer or party crawler, you see: I go to cons mostly to see people I don't get to see usually.
But the revisions are proceeding. I sent chapters 1-3 to Liz for her opinion (of course, she won't see them until Wednesday) and I'm to page ~130. Maybe a fifth of the way done. Working on what will be chapter 7.
I feel like all this new exposition is a bit more heavyhanded than I like to be--I'm an incluing-focused kind of girl--but if it helps more readers get through the book in one piece, so be it. At least the prose is a lot better than the beginning of the book. There are whole pages with no green on them at all.
The signing at Uncle Hugo's was nice yesterday, and I stopped by the Dreamhaven table and signed their stock today. Eventually, I may even learn how to spell my own name....
Back to geekville, I guess.
I still have about fifteen chizine subs to get through, too. And somebody at Ideomancer just sent me two or three weeks worth of slush. *raises eyebrow*
Sheesh. I think I'll do some of that when I finish this chapter.
