I am in the bliss of edits and rewrites. Oh, and I've learned two new 'revision tools.'

1. Change the gender of a minor character. Really makes you pay attention to pronouns, mannerisms (though I didn't change these at all, because they fit the character concept) and descriptions (he to she loses goatee).
2. Write a query. It took me weeks of successive queries to describe my novel in ~250 words; along the way, I discovered how I needed to make the manuscript clearer.
