Basketball and Revisions

It's hard to concentrate on writing when the NCAA Tournament is going on. Round two starts today (you heard me, NCAA. ROUND TWO), and the game I'm most interested in is the Butler-Pitt match-up. It's hard for me to believe the Dawgs have another big NCAA run in them, but stranger things have happened. Butler is a team designed to give other teams fits...and as long as they play good "D," hit the boards, and get a little outside shooting, they'll be able to compete with anyone.

My writing siesta continues this week. I shared some good news with a story acceptance this week, but I haven't written anything new or submitted a piece this week. I'm concentrating on revising I, Crimsonstreak and will also do a good read-through of The Franchise in the coming weeks.

Revisions aren't that bad--in fact, I think I'm dramatically improving the book--but it's also frustrating that I'm not writing something new. However, it's just as important to make sure a story or novel is as good as it can be.
