I´m switching it up today because I need to finish getting ready for our trip to the USA. We´re leaving today for Maryland…where we´ll spend Thanksgiving 🙂 It´s been forever since we spent Thanksgiving in the US and I´m very excited. I´m responsible for the mashed potatoes (garlic red and sweet).
In the plane I might try to revise. I won´t be ready for Pitch Wars but…I got a breakthrough…
After a query critique by the wonderful @jsinsheim and notes by the talented @alisonmiller20, I think I figured out how to best revise my MS

And then…this also made me feel better.
Drafts: 1. get all the bulls**t out of your head. 2. figure out what you meant to say. 3 figure out how to say it. 4. properly.

I´m so thankful for my husband, my family, my friends and all of you. Writing can be lonely but it definitely doesn´t like it thanks to you!
I can’t wait to check all your posts and see what you’ve been up to 🙂

When I saw that tweet by Lit Agent Marini I got re-inspired. I’m glad the writing is going well! Good luck with it!
Happy Thanksgiving, and have a fun trip!
That’s a great tweet by Victoria Marini! I’ll have to remember it. Happy Thanksgiving!
Have a wonderful trip, Elodie, and a Happy Thanksgiving here in the US. 🙂 Also, revise as much as possible so I can read more!
Have a wonderful time in Maryland celebrating Thanksgiving! So happy to hear you had a breakthrough. I loved that tweet from Victoria Marini too. 🙂
I saw that tweet by Victoria and Favorited it. Cheeky, but very true! Four drafts sounds about right for getting an MS in good shape. Or more if you’re learning (I think my first fully completed MS was more like 10!). I met Victoria this summer and she is FUNNY. Ascerbic and whip-smart.
Great tweet! I usually go through 4-5 drafts depending on how much I revise as I go. Good luck with your revisions! 🙂
Have a great trip and a great Thanksgiving, Elodie! And keep plugging away at that revision. I know I still owe you feedback. I’m so, so sorry it’s taking so long. I hope to have it to you soon!
Have a great Thanksgiving!
That tweet from Victoria is so great and very encouraging! Good luck with your revisions and your mashed potatoes!
Hope you have a smooth trip and a great Thanksgiving stateside! 🙂
I saw that tweet from Victoria and it just validated every single one of my drafts. Hope you have a wonderful trip and a Happy Thanksgiving, Elodie! SO glad I could read (and help you with) your story!
Hmm… yeah, that might be about right for the draft count. Seems a bit weird jammed into a tweet word count, don’t it? Happy Thanksgiving, and nice to meet you.
I hope you have safe travels. Victoria’s tweet makes me feel soooo much better.
