Knee-deep In Revisions A Revelation

Ah can you smell that?

The pungent scent of desperation, sweat, and is that a hint of blood?

Yup, it's that time. Revisions. Whoop-di-doo. I'm on page 25 out of 161. On top of several school assignments, a test, oh and now a speech, this may be my only night to get something done. Yay for getting sick! It means no class.

But on the bright side, I've FINALLY figured out how to get the ball rolling on this novel! It's been lounging about in the hard drive while I started a YA manuscript. Now, inspiration struck while talking to some YALitchatters. Vampires are out. This I know, and yet, I couldn't help myself. I know, what you're thinking why jump on the bandwagon? In my defense my vampire character existed before the vampire craze in another manuscript. Now, he will be reliquishing that title and becoming a soul sucker. :) Yeah. It's really quite cool. Oh and I'm pulling off a Great Gatsby sort of narration. My boy, Lucas, who has become the main character somehow (people seem to like him better), will narrate the novel during his parts in 1st person, but his crush shall be narrating most of the story in a 3rd person limited kind of way. It's different and either this'll rocks socks or become a jumbled mess. I'm hoping for the first option.

Wish me luck folks.

Elizabeth, good luck with your revisions. I like the POV you've set up. It sounds interesting. Good luck with your test and speech, too!

I'm addicted to revisions myself. Don't let the band wagon run over your ideas. Give us something fresh! :)
