Returning from Vacation


Our Alaska cruise was wonderful. We just saw portions of the pan-handle but what we saw was beautiful. I really hated to return home and to work.

Now, I'm so behind in my work it's likely to take me a while to get caught up. I'm going to have a tough time doing the revisions the people at AWA suggested.

They suggested combining my first and second chapters. The first was well written, but the second had more of a hook. I've started working on that, starting with chapter 2 and using flashbacks to incorporate the important elements of chapter 1. But I'm finding I'm losing a lot that is so important for character development in chapter 1. So, I'm rethinking how to do this, if I do at all. Maybe there's a way to incorporate a better hood into chapter 1 and not combine them at all.

Wish me luck, all 1 or 2 of  you faithful followers.
