Help Me Help the Animals

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." ~Mahatma Ghandi

I'm slowly but surely making progress on my revisions of One Night in Napa...just about halfway through now, and the word count is close to 68K. My goal is between 70 and 75, so I have a bit still to go. I'm trying oh-so-hard to be better at adding dialogue rather than inner thought (one of my constant areas in need of improvement), though I just finished a long section in which the hero is by himself, so that's a challenge sometimes!

In other news, I'd love for you to help me collect votes for the animal shelter where I volunteer...they're participating in a contest where the grand prize is $10,000 - and all you have to do is click this link and vote for them. Could you vote? And then help spread the word? Thanks!

I voted.

I voted too! Good Luck with revisions. As you know I have the opposite problem. Lot on dialoge and short on the inner thoughts.

Thanks for the link, Allie, and awesome job on your revisions. I'm bad at adding dialogue too, but half the battle is knowing what we need to improve on, right?
