Revisions received, time to get to work!
The truth is they are fine. Five pages of notes and a genius action plan which is very concise and just what I need. It tells me in one page and a few bullet points exactly what to change. Some things are going to need a little thinking through. My problem here is the time scale. I need to give some indication of how long I think the revisions will take me. Of course I want to do them all NOW. But right now, I'm really not that sure how long they are going to take me.
Plus on top of all that - I'm scared. There I've said it. I'm scared I might do these wrong. You know what I mean. I'm a data nerd and posted on eharlequin about getting some stats, and someone gave me some. I wondered how many people who submitted partials were asked for fulls. Then how many fulls got revisions. Then how many get second revisions and how many go on to be bought. I've seen lots of people on the eharlequin boards who've got to this stage and then got a big fat R. So that's what I'm afraid of. But on to better things...
Last of all, good luck to everyone at the Romance conference in Australia - I'm expecting FULL reports on your return!
