Slacker(ish) Alert!

Okay, so I must admit that I was a little surprised when I saw that it has been 24 days since my last blog post.  Wow……there goes that New Years resolution!  While I’m pretty bummed that I let it go so long….I promise, I actually have been productive.  I finished my woman cave (a/k/a my office, a/k/a my writing spot).  It’s been awesome!  I’ve been doing research, including reading different aged children’s books to get an idea of what age group I would like to target.  I’ve really done quite a bit.  In fact, I even FINISHED MY FIRST DRAFT!  I just couldn’t stop myself last night.  The words just kept coming, so I just let them.  I’m feeling very proud of myself, but I’m dreading the next stage.  Revision.  I know how important this stage is, so I need to make sure and do it right.  I’d like to also work more on my characters as well.  So my question for all of you is, do you have any tips or suggestions on the revision process?  I’ve read that it’s usually good to let a bit of time go by in between revisions, but I would love some more pointers to help me along the way.  As always, thanks!
