I know what you're thinking. "Oh sure, now that he's an AGENTED author, he's too good to pal around with all his old blog friends."
That's not it.
There's just nothing going on.
Nothing blog-worthy anyway. I've been 'planning' my revisions (cuz he asked me to 'think' them over), and it's a little more time-consuming than I thought it would be. Sure, I had it had it all worked out the first day - on paper even - but I want to go that extra mile. I want to impress him with my writerly diligence, my soldierly discipline, my generalized good-doobie-ing. So I've been making a detailed list of every scene in the book, labeling them with whatever purpose they supposedly serve - how they contribute to the greater whole. Since I'm such a big outlining nerd, each and every scene had a point before I ever wrote it, so I was having trouble finding any that were overtly 'unnecessary'. But what I am finding are lots of instances where I've accomplished the same thing multiple times over. So-and-so is a very aggressive character. But I don't need twelve scenes showing him beating on folks. Two's plenty.
Very enlightening technique. Y'all oughtter try it.
So I'm hoping that when I talk to my agent this week, I'll have 'my thoughts on revisions' detailed in writing (to a very nerdly degree of thorough-ness). And since his major concern was that I'd left too many mysteries unsolved, I'm also hoping to have a good draft of each of the four "revelatory plot development" scenes that need to be added.
So that's what I've been doing.
In other news, we had a big celebration last weekend. Maybe I'll have some pictures to post later this week. Secondly, I'd like to remind all the locals that the twin's big birthday/Halloween party is this Friday at 5 pm (happy eighth, girlie-girls). Thirdly, I'd like to very crypticly mention that it's been confirmed: the Veenie Babies officially have one less mouth to feed. If you know what I'm talking about, please don't blurt it out in the comments.
I wouldn't want law enforcement officials discovering the extent of my criminal negligence.
