This isn't a habit, this is spending the day editing the 2005 "Beasts and Angels" because a New York editor wanted to see three chapters. Not just any NY editor, but a friend of Miss Snarks.
I spent the day doing that and then sent it off, expecting the usual rejection letter but no. She really likes it. She wants it re-written to a more linear plot but Hell she said "You're a great writer and I want to see more."
Of course I'll re-write it.
