Monday Inspiration for Daunting Tasks
p.s. Agent 99 got back to me with advice to dive back in one more time with some structural changes. She felt that the work we did this summer didn't exactly address the thing that we identified was wrong with the novel from the get-go. She was very kind and made some very lofty comparisons of how popular and literary she thinks the novel can be if I can fix the problem. I was hoping not to have to restructure, for fear of ruining everything, but I think she's right; it's what I need to do. Turns out the six month hiatus was good. After being away form it, I think I'm up to the task. Sometimes time is just the thing to offer a fresh perspective. Anyway, I'm going back in; wish me luck.
