Some loverly news to report, we're almost done with edits for The Soul Seekers. Remember a few weeks back I sent off the latest round, but only after knocking my head against the desk every few seconds because of some very difficult cuts? I had gone back and forth trying to decide whether or not to cut a favorite scene per editor's comments. I felt it was a great scene, but in the end I decided to take it out to move the action along. I pretty much went over this for two weeks before making the decision. So anyway, yesterday evening I get an email from Kristine saying all changes were approved, except one section. I open the document thinking she had some random scene (like the attic scene--lots of backstory), but it's the scene, the one I had stressed over. She put it back in saying she liked it too much to see it go and for me to just cut it down a little. And she added a big smily face to show she knew of the minor heart attack I'd have upon opening the document. Oh, editor humor! So . . . yay : ) I'm so happy that the scene is back and that we're almost done. Three years of work, folks. It's a strange feeling knowing I won't be revising or editing after this last round. Mostly I feel relieved and happy.
