I'm writing two YA novels about a President's daughter for Dutton books, and the revision of book one is due January 20th. I didn't write much during Advent, and now I must JAM. It's a good thing that I like revising better than writing the original first draft. The word itself signifies fresh starts and second chances -- "RE-VISION." It's what the Author of faith does with human lives -- takes a narrative arc that's not great to begin with and works away at it until it becomes a tale well-told, a story worth hearing, an unforgettable hero's journey. Here's to a great year of revising and being revised! Happy 2006!
