OMG GRAPEMO IS HERE. Yay! And...EEK! January went by so fast!

I'm going to choose to ignore my fear to instead cheer all of us on: GOOOO GRAPENUTS!!! *\o/*

...Oh yeah, and go work on finishing my revisions, like I said I would. XD

I can't believe it! Day One, and I searched for the word "thought," having realized the italics tell the reader it's not dialogue. I cut and sliced my baby to pieces in some spots because they were not needed, they didn't move the story along, they just added to the word count. All unnecessary. I've learned! A year ago I didn't have a clue about something like that. Tomorrow I look for ~ly words so they can be changed or omitted. It's never started in such a logical manner before. I'm excited!
