Smack. I've been hit with another rejection for my novel. The book needs work. I'll admit that. It was the first thing I wrote with the intention to publish. My early shorts were pathetic, so Saints obviously could use a major overhaul as well.
Well...I'm going to do it. I'm going to tackle a significant revision of the entire novel. I can't look forward to NaNoWriMo if I abandoned my former MCs to the file cabinet. I believe in this story; I want to tell it. I want people to read it.
The first thing to change...the title. I like The Last Days of the Sprindale Saints, but it is a tad long. How about The Saints are Dead or Springdale is Dead? (By the way, the Saints are the high school football team in the book.)
I have a long haul ahead, but I've worked to long on this for Andrew's (the MC) voice to be silent. I owe him that much.
Off to work.
