I heard from D.A. today. He's not completely sold on every point of my outline, but overall he thought it was a lot better. He pointed out what he saw as potential trouble spots and said to keep them in mind while I start rewrites. He wants the first 100 pages...and then we'll go from there.
So, rewrites will officially begin. I'm still limping along with changes to BTPM, so I may give myself this weekend to get as far as possible. Then I'll just have to juggle them both, I guess. The good news is that I've worked out a change with my summer classes to get two weeks off right before school begins. LOVELY. I need a big chunk of time to do nothing but concentrate on my books. I had planned to go out to Breck, CO for a week or so, but we'll see how far along I am at that point. The change of scenery might be what I need to get the juices flowing, though... Only thing is that I'm very easily distracted and honestly, there are soooo many things there to look at, to smell, to just bask in the glory of. (g) It'd be tempting to chuck all work and go be one with nature. :)
So, this is good news...pretty much what I hoped for. YAY. :)
