Ever had that experience where you are doing something and you think you know a lot about it and then it smacks you square in the face that you don't? That has been me and revision.
|This is probably closer to reality.|
But that means that the revision of these early chapters is something to be reckoned with. I was working on a chapter yesterday where I introduce a new character - I had to find her name to figure out if it really was her because her voice was so WRONG. When I set out on this revision, I thought if I was slow and meticulous, I could maybe get away with just one and then do line edits, etc. later, but I have a sneaky suspicion that the learning process for revision is just starting.
