Thanks to Agent #4 (see? I'm being thankful already!) I have a good idea of the major flaws in The Book. Knowing this, I can now see that The Book needs such a thorough revision as to all but scrap the last year's worth of revisions, strip the story down to the bare framework and restart from there. It's another Learning and Growth Opportunity in my Chosen Career as a Writer.
Only I'm so annoyed with the process and stuck as to how to go about it that I've been all but paralyzed where writing is concerned for the past, oh, four months?
In my last email exchange with Agent #4 I said I would have something to her by the end of December. Thankfully, (see, still thankful here!) I still have just over a month to get back to writing.
Enjoy the holiday. Stay safe and nap regularly.
