Oh my gosh, I had such a bad dream last night: I had sent Holly back my manuscript with the last 20 pages unrevised.

This is because I've been asking myself the last couple days if I did everything she asked me to.

Accept grammatical changes? Check. Post up certain chapters? Check. Add context for MC's first day of school? Check. Emphasize MC's moment of decision and the result of it? Ummm....

Did I do that?

I can't remember. My writing group says I did. Dave says I did.

But I don't know.

The re-revision didn't take weeks and weeks, like I thought it would. Like it did before.

My writing group said it was because I had already done that huge revision. Dave said the same.

Should I trust them?

Jennie--I'm sure you did a great job on your revisions! Won't Holly let you know if she thinks you aren't quite there yet?

Take the rest of the weekend and have some non-writing fun with your family. :)

Trust your writing group? What are you thinking???

Break a leg!

Right! Right!

My writing group is AWESOME! I trust them more than I trust myself.
