Okay I didn't write all of this, but I edited the passive voice out of 12 chapters today. That is 42,865 words!!! I also took it and edited those 12 chapters for the LDS market, changing a few things here and there. I am impressed, and excited I thought it would take much longer than this. I am 1/3 of the way to sending it to Covenant. AAAAAAA!!!!!!!!
I am not getting my hopes up, it is speculative fiction and although it doesn't preach the gospel it has some "seeds" of truth that might make it passable. The bad guy gets a conscience and goes good type of thing. (And a little romance.) I am under the firm belief that if I don't submit it, it will never get accepted in the future.
(I asked Kirk Shaw if they did any science fiction and he said that they did but hadn't in a while. I asked him why and he said that what had been submitted was Crap. I asked what kind of crap, stuff not apropriate for them or not good writing. He said they were bad writing.)
Let's hope that Dominion Day is good writing acording to Kirk. :)
