Rejoice and Revise

Margaret Woollatt (Dutton) came back to me on Thanksgiving Eve with thirteen single-spaced pages of wonderful editorial suggestions, and now the revision of Sparrowblog: The Campaign Rant is due January 20th. Meanwhile, I had a Venezuelan lunch with Judy O'Malley (Charlesbridge) who read The Bamboo People, and had some great ideas about how to tighten and brighten that story. Guess what I'll be doing over the holidays? That's right. Staring at the screen of my PowerBook G4, just like I'm doing now, fingers flying across the keyboard like reindeers on a mission. Ho, ho, ho. But, hey, I'm not complaining. I'll be doing what I love (revising), and avoiding what I hate (shopping at crowded malls for things that none of us really need.)
