A joke, revisions and a mini rant

Condoms aren’t completely safe. A friend of mine was wearing one and got hit by a bus. ~Bob Rubin
I needed a laugh, and thought I’d share that quote. :mrgreen: OK, so revisions are a PIA. Or let me qualify that. Going through my CP’s crits and taking what I want and making the notes is a PIA. Don’t get me wrong, I love my CP’s, :sunggle:they really catch crap, it’s just tedious work, sifting through it, especially when one of them (clearing throat Edie Ramer :page:) has a fixation with the color red. Mucho thanks ladies, you know I like it when you get down and dirty. Now once I have all of their crits back, and notes made, then the fun part begins for me. I print out the rough revised version and start to really layer. The story is strong but there are several kinks I need to iron out. I hope to have it complete and in my editor’s hands by mid October.
I was guest blogger over at SlayYour Demons.com, Julie Kenner’s blog, go check it out.
I feel so bad, many of my writer friends who have read it think I’m talking about them. :talktothehand:I’M NOT! It’s my family (you know who you are) and clueless friends (you know who you are) who drive me crazy. :cursing: My writer friends who are also friends are angels. So please those of you who are offended, don’t be. I love you. :drunk: But you others, the ones who bug the crap out of me, get your own freakin’ sword and slay your own damn demons. :starwars2:
lol, didn’t realize I still had that bit or rant left in me.
OK, so, now, I’m off to input more crits from my world champion CP’s.
BTW, if you don’t have stellar CP’s, you’re missing out. Do yourself a favor and hunt for a good one. While they are hard to come by, once found they’re worth their weight in gold.
Write on,

    :hello2: Love the joke and I needed a chuckle!

    And you’re right, good CPs are most excellent to have. :guitar:

    You haven’t figured out my secret plan yet? I’m getting back at you for all the color you put in my subs. :evil2:

    Keep on coloring, GF. :mickeymouse: I love a CP who tells the truth. :sunggle:

    Love the joke too. :cooldance:
