The good news, if it can truly be viewed as such, is that I know this one needs a lot of work. It's rough. Still, it's hard to open that critiqued file and see all the red or blue or green (depending on the color they choose) comments made by my CPs. But I know they're not doing it maliciously, and it's not personal.
Actually, it is kind of personal. They make all those marks in order to help me turn out a document that's as polished as I can get it. And for that I'm grateful.
At the last minute, I had to go back and add another scene in order for the ending to make more sense. That extended the synopsis to a full 6 double-spaced pages. Still not bad, since the ms is 460 double-spaced pages. I just know I have to keep it short, as nobody seems to be as interested in the longer synopses these days.
So now I wait with bated breath to see what further work needs to be done to this stupid thing.
