Sports Sunday #6: I'm Baaaa-aaackkk

So there hasn't been a Sports Sunday in a little while, but there's a really, really good excuse as to why. I've been revising. For those of you who don't know, revising isn't editing. Editing is making sure your periods and commas are in the right places and changing, "angry" to "furious" and things like that.

Revision is something totally different. It's the result of copious notes from your editor about plot and characterization and conflict and all the things about your book that don't work quite right.

Revision (unlike golf, which I covered in a previous Sports Sunday) is TOTALLY a sport. Hell, it's a contact sport, even if the only collision is between your forehead and the laptop keyboard.

That being said, today I sent the first round of revisions for Game. Set. Match. back to my editor.

So for those of you who are revising or will be revising at some point in the future, I bring you some Sports Sunday inspiration, even if it is fictional!
