My true love has read every word of the second draft and pronounced it pretty darn good. He suggests certain revisions to the subplot, which I think are indeed necessary, so I am starting draft three with a reworking of that subplot. Yay! I am so grateful to Kurt for reading it all, giving thoughful feedback, and staying positive throughout this whole process.
Meanwhile, the other saga is winding on. Still working on chapter 3.
And a copy of Twilight just came in for me at the library. So... guess I have my reading list pretty much set.
Write on, y'all!
