What now? I know - revise, revise, revise!

So now that I'm a winner and I'm not frantically writing every night, I find myself at a loss as to what to do. Two years ago when I won just the thought of trying to write anything ever again was enough to exhaust me, but that's not the case this year.

So I think I'm going to continue revising my 2005 novel Two Seasons in London. I started revising it in August or September, but I didn't get very far because there's SO much revision to be done. But after I'm done revising I might go ahead and actually print a copy of the book - in real book form - from Lulu. Ang told me that she ordered a copy of her 2005 novel last week and how cool would it be to say to someone: "And here's a copy of my novel" and have it be an actual book?! Of course Two Seasons... needs a LOT of work before I even think about being ready to visit Lulu, not the least of which is fixing my change from first person to third person in the middle of the story.

ang: I've already resubmitted and ordered a second edition from Lulu, so I have some basic formatting suggestions before you send it to them - dumb stuff, like leave two blank pages at the beginning and the end to create the illusion of end sheets. :) Can't wait to order the revised and published version of "Two Seasons..."!
