Revision Girl, Strikes Again!

Still under crazy deadlines (now with a last minute revision of FINS ARE FOREVER--aka FINS2--due ASAP), hence the late posting. Here are a couple of funnies from my favorite writing cartoonist, InkyGirl.

Comic #1: Timely because I am doing revisions RIGHT NOW.

Revision Angst

Comic #2: Timely because my darling editor just got engaged.

Form Letter Rejection

Comic #3: Timely because I still need a title for my Medusa girls series and the first book.

The Book Title

Comic #4: Timely because I have a book coming out in TWELVE DAYS!

Amazon rating obsession


Oh. My. Gods. and Goddess Boot Camp (Greek gods are more than myth.)
FORGIVE MY FINS (What happens when a mermaid kisses a human?)

I thought we named that book Stone Cold Hot Chicks? :P

You can totally do it all, and that's no JOKE!

awww, and I've been calling it Kiss My Asp, in my head....well, if you don't use it, somebody will have to!

Don't know if it helps...you being the PROFESSIONAL writer and all, but when I have a paragraph that I know won't fit, but I still love it, I've been setting them aside to make/add to new stories.

...And didn't you say this is your shortest revision yet!?!?!?

Frankly, there seem to be a number of people (including me) who would be more than happy to take whatever you have now (or rip it from your fingertips)...So don't stress too much, as Sarah said in the previous comment--"You can totally do it all, and that's no JOKE!"

Oh, those comics are hilarious! I can totally relate to that first one right now. :P

So funny! Particularly the one about the proposal!

@~Jamie If I could get away with calling it Stone Cold Hot Chicks I totally would!

@nymfaux Great idea about save precious paragraphs for later. Makes it easier to take them away. And this *is* my shortest revision letter ever, but it's also due on Monday, so... :-)

Great cartoons, Tera!
