I've made no secret of that fact that I'm in the midst of revisions on CALLARION AT NIGHT. From December 31, when I said the core of the story was "done," I've easily rewritten or added a net amount of pages between 50 and 100.
Yeah, the core of the story is not "done." In fact, after my wonderful amazing fantastic betas read it, I discovered that the core of the story was nowhere near "done." I've easily set off on more research in the past two months than during the eight months it took me to complete the first draft. Language and psychology have been the big time sucks during revisions thus far (thanks to Amalia for letting me pick her brain about Old Norse words). My friends Alice and Casey are helping a lot on the psychology front, as is the brilliant one know 'round these parts as fairyhedgehog.
Suffice to say, I'm moving right along through this revision thing. It takes me roughly two to three days to go through a chapter, so I'm estimating (read:praying) to be done with this third (I think) round of edits sometime in March or April. I should precede the previous by saying I expect the edits on the first ten chapters to be done by then. I've split the thing into chunks to save my sanity. Also because the middle is going to require massive rewrites based on what I do with these first ten chapters, so I'd rather get this beginning ironed out before moving on. I might actually hit my August goal to start querying. Who knows?
