Still working on the story. I've made some changes and I think I like it a little better, but something's still not feeling quite right.
It's a shame the story is too "adult" for me to bring in to my students as a lesson on revision.
The thing is, I don't tend to do a whole lot of post-writing revision, even though that's what we teach. I do most of my revising as I write. Somehow, it didn't work that way this time, and I'm left with a story that I know needs SOMETHING, but I don't know what!
Well, I still have some time, so I'll have to keep tinkering. This is proving to be a pretty unique experience for me - new story idea, new process...I guess that can't all be a bad thing!
