Monday's Muse~Going Back
Sometimes it takes someone with a sharp eye who is completely removed from the manuscript in any emotional way to point out where it needs improvement. That was exactly the case for my manuscript. The fixes were simple things that made me want to smack my forehead and cry out, "why didn't I see that?" So last week for the remainder of my vacation I've been applying the changes Fabulous Editor suggested to my entire novel. It is polished to a high sheen now and I feel really good about it. Which is important because Fabulous Editor said to contact her when I was finished. :-)
While editing the music that fed my muse was Avril Lavigne and Allison Iraheta. Those artists fit the mood for this novel so well for me. The book that is feeding my muse is Across The Universe by Beth Revis. I'm enjoying it so far and only wish I had more time to read! Any news on the literary front for you? What inspired you last week?
