Sent Revision 2. Yikes!
« on: December 29, 2011, 01:26:32 PM »
Recap: I got an R&R in September, sent the revision just before Thankgiving (major) and got another R&R 3 weeks later, this one minor, compared to the first.

So. I'm guessing it's sink or swim now. I have 2 other fulls and 2 other partials out, which are from the first round of revision, but revision 2 drops a plot element that you either love or don't.

At least I know all will be quiet for a few more days.

Buono, buono fortuna, Duff! ;D
Critiques should spur growth and improvement. Neither is painless.

I don't do personal attacks, defense/debate of work or grudges.

Remember, my comment's worth exactly what you paid for it. Use it, ignore it or PM-me and I'll remove it. 

Buona fortuna!

Good luck! Still finishing up my first round of revisions for an agent, so I know the stress.  :eek:

Good luck, Duff!

I'm one step behind you--about the revise a 2nd time.

We should start a support group.

Cheers and may good things come your way very!
