What a great song. Personally I don't think David Bowie when I hear that song, I think of Shrek. Tell tale sign ... I'm a mom! Still, my Dear Husband insisted Davie Bowie was the way to go. And since Dear Husband is the inspiration behind my newest change, I indulged him.
What is the change you ask? (NO I am NOT pregnant!!! Why do people always make that assumption first? I have 3 children for goodness sake! That is more than enough for crazy me to handle!)
My new change involves my novel. After discussing, trying to rewrite a scene in my manuscript, and MORE discussing, I have decided to move an entire chapter. AN ENTIRE CHAPTER!!! (And you were going to tell me I wasn't crazy a moment ago weren't you?) Here I thought the revisions on my first draft would be all grammar and spelling. Oh no, this is Marybeth we are talking about....Break out the full plot changes and chapter moving. No need to keep it simple or anything. That would be way too easy! Who would want to leave all the pain and suffering to the query letter alone?
Tell me dear friends. Have you ever made a large change like this after you considered your novel to be complete? Was it as thrilling for you as it is for me? Did you find yourself thoroughly questioning your own sanity as I am now? :) Lay it on me kids.
