I am close to the finish line of first draft editing, but I think the next step will be the most brutal — revision. There is so much to do. I know it was going to need some work, but I didn't know how much until I really started to go at it with a red pen. I think I'm looking forward to revisions though. It will give me a change to refine and define my characters. I think they're shaping up to be pretty interesting people.
