Time and dedication

and very little sleep...that's all it takes to tackle revising the biggest plot twist in a crime/thriller novel in all 172 pages (20 chapters. And it's longer once I switch it to Arial, which the publishers seem to prefer!).

If only the solution had come to me in a dream FIVE YEARS AGO! Instead, this novel has bugged me and frustrated me for five years because I was struggling to change what desperately needed fixing!

Now it's done, except to go back and read it all again and make sure the flow and suspense have not been altered by my recent work.

Maybe I'll have time as we drive to NY to work on the trolls next...
