Not exactly unloved.

I just received a very, very nice rejection filled with helpful comments and suggestions. I'd promised myself I wouldn't rewrite/revise DH again, but my agent encouraged me to. She says I'm on the brink, and that the ms has *almost* sold twice as is. So, I'm putting my other two project on hold for a few weeks and diving back into this story again.

I'm really starting to have a love hate relationship with this book. Having finished first drafts of several projects since initially writing DH, it is starting to look like a lopsided sweater by a first time knitter. I guess it is good I can see that, but at times I'm not sure if I can fix it without unraveling the entire thing. The book already only marginally resembles what I first queried my agent with, and this rewrite promises to be extensive. Hopefully that means it is getting better.

Well, off to work.
