I’m deep into book re-writes now, which so far as I can tell, works like this:

– I get edits back
– I spend a ton of time rewriting the chapter, doing new research to fill in gaps, etc
– I send the chapter back
– I get another full set of edits back in 1-2 days

Right now I’m sprinting to try and get some chapters ready to go out as samples to people, excerpts of what a great book the whole thing’s going to be. And hopefully that’ll be great.

But this cycle of revision hurts.
