Whatever the case, I had a good time during the revision process. It was a bit frustrating at the beginning, but after a week or two I really began to enjoy the work. I had the chance to revisit some old haunts and spend some quality time with some old friends. It was also quite rewarding to be immersed in something creative for an extended period of time. If nothing else, the experience reminded me of the importance of cultivating and maintaining a rich inner life.
I plan to republish the novel some time in the next week. Details will follow shortly.
