Manuscript revision is my priority this summer

Manuscript Revision rules my life, after family priorities. Home takes on a special twinge of the heart after travels, wonderful as it was to see family and friends, and to traverse across this great continent of North America.  Time, energy and finances limit exploration, and on the spot historical research for the next novel.

Struggles with Microsoft Word 08 for the Mac, (in dealing with long manuscript documents) prompted me to try  Scrivener.  There is a learning curve, but in the long run, I trust it will save me hours of time.  Others in the GSRWA (Greater Seattle Romance Writers of America) writing community have used it and found it helpful.  The web site offers videos and there is a good tutorial, which (grin) made it possible for me to understand the videos on the second pass.

In the interest of sharing, posted below are  some links of interest to writers.
Excellent site for tracking Queries, including a data base of agents/publishers
Education for writers sponsored by RWA, Romance Writers of America
A Manuscript Revision method offered by Holly Isle.  Worth a look.

Until next time, enjoy the summer, and blessings to all.
