Breakdown Shakedown

Yes, I did just make an alarming musical reference. Get over it. 

Anyway, just quick pointing to this BRILLIANT post by Maggie Stiefvater (whose Lament I really do have to read very, very soon) breaking out the various stages of rough draft. Because I'm just finishing a revision, it makes me long to get back to those messy, early draft days. Soon. Soon. 

(Although the new ending makes the 75,001-80,000 word stage pretty much still what I'm experiencing RIGHT NOW. Only crossed with having done it once already, but ending 15,000 words earlier. Some of us have drafts that have to get longer in revision. Shocking, but true.)

Bleary-eyed, and off to bed — with a copy of The Forest of Hands and Teeth. Yay, zombies!
