I'm still wallowing in revision hell. It's toasty. Good for my cold toes, yet occasionally itchy. Heh.
I recently got back a hard copy of my MS that a beta had read. The paper waste is guilt-inducing, I admit, but for the first time, I saw something I hadn't noticed.
The physical distance of seeing my pages of manuscript made a lot of my beta/CP comments suddenly very real. This flavor of comment in particular:
"This scene goes on for too long...it takes forever to get from point A to B..."
I mean, I could really see this stuff now. Maybe it's temporal distance, maybe it's really seeing the text in front of me on paper.
Have you ever only "seen" problems in your manuscript after seeing it printed in tiny little pages?
