Which is probably why I go through several stages of revision faces.
The first is outright panic:
|You want me to do WHAT?!|
|But I. Can't. Do. Thaaaat!!!|
|No, really, how am I supposed to make this happen?|
The second is a kind of manic acceptance, when the ideas start to fall into place and I realize I everything might just work out after all. That was me on Saturday.
|I've got it! I've got it! I'VE GOT ITTTT!!!|
|PREPARE TO BE MY BITCH, REVSIONS!|
But by Sunday night, when I'd been through two revise-a-thons? It felt like someone had set my eyes on fire.
What kinds of stages do you go through when you tackle revisions? Does everyone have a moment of panic, or is it just me?
