My very, very, VERY HELPFUL AND AWESOME BROTHER has started reading through my story. He’s going above and beyond, making comments in the margins about every knee-jerk reaction he has. I seriously have to give him a huge shout-out and thank-you. Once he’s read through the manuscript, the various revisions will take a while, but in the meantime, I’ve started compiling a list of possible literary agents. I also ordered several *cough*sixteen*cough* books from the library on a topic that, in his reading, my brother recommended might need a little more research. I know that’s really cryptic, but I’m superstitious enough to not want to share details of a manuscript until it’s all done.
So, for now, it’s a lot of reading, a lot of revising, and a lot researching. Not a huge update, but this is the part of the writing process that is made up of little steps.
But each step, even small, is still forward. Wish me luck.
