I finally got Shade and Shadow and Letters printed out and i took it to work and i went through the whole thing and did some work to it.
It's funny. I have Shade already started to be Smashed... i thought it was ready to go, but even now, having read through it eleventy-seven times and doing how many revisions, i'm still making more. Of course, now with the second one there are things that need to be tweaked just-so so they match up with the later story.
And Letters... i've read through it on the computer a thousand times and thought it was nice and done, and i wouldn't have to do much to it. boy was i wrong. Not only edits and elaborations and pretification but one of the letters themselves. Completely wrong. assigning an attribute to the wrong sister. read it a thousand times, never noticed it before.
Sometimes i'm such a dunce.
So now i suppose i should go get some coffee this coming sunday and apply revisions to at least one of them.
It feels good to half-cross out one of those things on my to-do list for 2013
