May Bee Day 22
These Thirdlanders really make me laugh. The stories were a little rough around the edges, but through the back and forth of the revision process between author and editor, they really are great fun to read now. My favorite rough draft was about
a young woman who
gets bullied in college by a guy, so she studies karate and beats the heck out of him. Then he keeps bullying her so she beats the heck out of him again.
Some changes were made and the story now really hangs together, without losing any of its powerful active spirit. Today we were a publishing house revising and illustrating our books. Tomorrow we have the big collage book cover design session. It's going to be epic. Friday.... the publishing party! Ooh La La!
