First Draft Edits and Chinese Take-out

I picked up my Chinese take-out order and, when I got home, discovered there were seven fortune cookies included. So, are they being generous, or… did I just buy enough food for SEVEN PEOPLE?

Don’t judge. I’m editing.

That’s right. It’s time to take that big sloppy 70,000-word mess of a first draft (written during last year’s National Novel Writing Month – NaNoWriMo) and turn it into something rese

Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Ellen Louise, you've done the sensible thing all your life. Now's the time to follow your heart."
"What if I do that and he still turns me down?"
"What if you don't and you never know?”
Jenna Kernan, The Last Cahill Cowboy

“Dang it, Chance. You been here one day and you killed a man and split another one's skull open. I got enough to do without you adding more work."
Chance kept his tone level. "He drew on me."
"Why were you over in the Badlands in the first place?"
"You know why."
Bowie glared, then lowered his voice. "Think you can get through a day without killing someone?"
"Don't know. It's early yet.”
Jenna Kernan, The Last Cahill Cowboy

“You saved our lives, back there."
He leaned his mouth a few inches from hers. "You want to show me your gratitude?"
Ellie moved closer and rested her hands on the great expanse of Chance's broad chest. His mouth twitched in what might have been an unpracticed smile that shot straight through her like a ray of sunlight. She gave him the tight smile she saved for difficult guests, then whispered to him.
"Not if you were the last man in Texas.”
Jenna Kernan, The Last Cahill Cowboy

Oh, you're welcome, Mikky. I see you are reading Bound By Darkness. That looks interesting. Have you started it yet?

I just added HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE by Frost based on a recommendation of one of the readers groups here. I see you've read that one and like it. Maybe that should be next on my list.

I still am learning GoodReads and posting is a little confusing to me. Not sure how to write someone, only how to reply. :-P

Jenna Kernan Austin. Well, well. You have drifted far. I'm well and doing great. Working on a new Nocturne now and waiting on edits for the next Nocturne (Beauty's Beast 01/2013) and copy edits on a new Western. Busy, busy! But I sure do remember the first time I ever signed a book...yours!

Thanks, Jean! I'm still figuring out GoodReads and it took me a few minutes to find you comment and to figure out how to reply. It means a lot to me to know that readers enjoy my stories. Your comment made my day!
