Here’s where I am with the revisions:

I’m doing pretty well. I’m realizing that there are a few sections that still worry me; they were originally on the list to get cut/revised, but when I re-read them I was like these are the most honest parts.

They just aren’t the most flattering parts.

(It’s awkward to write about characters behaving badly in shall-we-say-ordinary ways. We’re used to characters making Big Mistakes or having Tragic Flaws or being Just Plain Evil, but we’re not used to sympathetic characters being ungenerous or insensitive or casually cruel.)

That’s all I want to say about that right now because I’m still thinking about a lot of stuff—and because there’s a lot of other stuff for all of us to think about, right now.

So…  take care, y’all, and I’ll check in again next week. ❤️
