I knew more about the end of my prequel than I did about the beginning, so this novel began with a false start. You have to start a novel somewhere, but all circles begin with an erroneous starting point and revision has a linguistic link to revolution. When to revise—is the question. The muses have treated me well, but I went back and revised after the Muse stopped whispering in my ear.That first chapter has moved a quarter the way through the book and it will probably need a couple of more edits to get it up to snuff.
