Heh, my 200th post was an apology! Well, my 201st will be questions:
1. Do you think it's easier to revise a manuscript or write an entirely new one?
2. Which would you rather have happen: one huge bestseller that you know will never be topped (by you) or a life-long career as a mid-list author?
3. Let's pretend that I can tell the future with 100% accuracy (ha!). I read your manuscript, and I can tell you whether it will ever be published, or whether it won't. Do you want to know? Do you want to work on it, or do you want to move on to a new manuscript to start? (in other words, how much value is in revising a work that is unpublishable? at what point does revision become counter-productive?)
...and speaking of questions, I'd just like to announce:
I've got two author interviews lined up now, but if any of you have suggestions on where to dig up more, please let me know! :)
