I've been enjoying my time off and have made great progress on my book pile. One the things I'm forcing myself to re-read is Human Phoenix.

It's painful.

There's so much I'd do differently. Resisting the urge to open Word and make changes has been a constant challenge. As a first novel, it's full of structural and narrative problems - but I like it.

I could go back and revise it. But, it would take months of work. Better to leave it as a record of my very first writing effort.

I do want to improve (develop really) my revision skills, but this is not the piece to do it on.

For the stateside readers -- be sure to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that you can enjoy your Memorial Day weekend.
