Contest Preparation

Revision plays a very large role in writing. Sometimes it seems to be all revision. And the longer I write, the more I revise--and it's never completely right.
--Ellen Hunnicutt

I'm still revising In Her Eyes, and I'm finding that the revision seems to spawn more revision. This week, I printed and read the entire story. It was very helpful to me to do it that way; I found that it was better than I expected, but there are still several spots that need a lot of work. The scene where the hero and heroine meet, for example, needs to be stronger, so I'm revising that right now.

I'm still planning to send the first three chapters to the Barclay Sterling Contest, so I need to get them revised and ready to go in the next two months.

I'm also considering having a website created. I've found this company, Writer Web Designs, and they are offering a great deal on websites now. I just have to make a decision by January 31 to take advantage of this particular offer. My only hesitation is the fact that I'm not published yet. So I'm still considering, but I'll keep you posted.
