No, not the TV show. I've never seen it, and have no urge. Nope. I'm talking about a editing.
I was talking with my CP via e-mail about the work I've been doing to Spectacle, and she was aghast. She loves the manuscript as is. I don't blame her; I love it, too. She said she was going to start referring to me as Hacker/Slasher.
I'm no hack n slash kind of gal. I can barely snip. The sight of my own manuscript bleeding words makes me nauseous. Instead, I told her, I'm doing a little nip-tuck. Cosmetic surgery only. It's well past any attempt at major surgery, and if it needs it, then I guess it'll fade away into obscurity. (I don't think it does, and neither does anyone else who's read it, so I don't think we have to worry about a surgeon.)
What I want to know is: Are you the kind of writer who goes in for the major surgery editing of your manuscripts or are you a fan of the nip-tuck?
