Ditto what Kate said about psychic distance. The fact that she schooled me on what she learned was immensely helpful for my EIGHTH revision. I did change from 3rd to 1st on revision 2 when I realized that the later books would require it. I swear, if someone else asks me to rewrite this book, I will scream loud enough to shatter the moon and cause an apocalypse of epic proportions!
In other words, yes. Yes, I am a masochist and so much more. But... the book is done... I hope.
