Buried in edits

I've neglected my blog a bit.

Has anyone out there in the void missed me? =p

I've been spending quite a bit of time editing.

For a little while now, my head has slowly been growing. Filling with hot air and the thoughts that I might actually be a great writer and my first novel is ready for agent submission.

Thankfully nemesis is always there to strike down those filled with hubris.

I'll admit I got a bit big for my britches (is that how you spell it?). I got a little boastful and preachy to others about writing. I should remember humility.

This I was given a taste of that well deserved humility when two seperate critiquers shredded a number of my chapters.

Not in an insulting or hurtful way, but it still stung a bit.

They showed me I still have quite a bit to learn and fix before I can consider my work good enough for publishing.

Live and learn right.

Needless to say, I'll be editing for a while.
