I'm excited. I'm about to embark on the biggest major rewrite of Falling since I started it in (can you believe this?) 1991. Based on quite simple comments from the crit group, stuff I couldn't believe I couldn't see before, I have a page of notes that will strengthen the plot, stitch stuff together better, create nice throughlines, trim and tighten and more. It'll be a big job but I can't wait to get started.
Falling didn't fit it, and I have what I wanted from the process. But I did hear back from my friend Mat who promised to read it and is now reading an old copy. I feel kind of guilty, but if he finds one spelling mistake it'll be worth it.
