Revision is like a flower

This Rocky Mountain Bee Plant feels like a symbol of where I’m at with the revisions of my middle grade novel. Some aspects of the story have fully bloomed and won’t change much as I continue revising.

Other aspects are still revealing themselves to me. Slowly unfurling their blossoms to become beautiful, integral, and incredibly obvious how-did-I-not-already-know-that components of the whole.

It’s an exciting and gratifying place to be in the process.

  1. I’m having such a hard time getting out of the revision process, myself. I’m on “Final” Version #5 after seven or eight drafts. Nature makes everything look so easy. Maybe because we don’t see the broader adaptations that occur slower overtime.
