I've never finished a third draft before, much less one that I intended to query from the start. It's completely new territory for me.
But I do have some semblance of a plan.
- I'm going to edit. Actually, I've already begun searching for adverbs (something I've never done before to any of my other MSs) and am discovering many things about them, as I will no doubt tell later in the week.
- I'm going to write the query, obviously. Deep in adverb editing, I'm kind of in denial about the need for a query. :/ But don't worry, I won't hurry this most important document.
- I'm going to participate in the event I've always watched with admiring eyes: NaNoWriMo. I'm ready to 'write for fun' again, now that this Ivolet story is complete when it comes to story-crafting, and NaNoWriMo could not have come at a more perfect time. (It's kind of ridiculous how excited I am about this.)
