There are some particularly stubborn and thorny patches in the story that I keep weeding and weeding and weeding and then, when I think that I've conquered it all, I come back only to find that it has overgrown with weeds again...

I really like it. My book. I'm not quite sure if I've never known or if I've forgotten that revision can be so much fun. I'm having a real blast right now, even though my main characters keep having cat-fights all the time. I actually had to cut out one scene, because I decided that they were too "catty" with each other. But it's so much easier and so much fun working with the text, that has already been written, adding bits and pieces and, as my critique partner said, "populating it" with stuff and substance.
