Writing Time vs. Reading Time

Last week and the week before I worked on Chapter 5 of Enchanted No More. Saturday my critique group met and all this week I've revised -- for the third or fourth time -- Chapter 3 (an Elemental Balancer is quite different from a Timeshifter, and the River of Time was actually easier to describe than my idea of the interdimension). If I did my job right, you will sigh and sympathize in chapter 3 and shudder in Chapter 4. But these chapters are around 15-16 manuscript pages. They should read in a few minutes.

That's my job. (Long and grumpy whine cut here, be grateful).

May you enjoy reading today.
