I am close to finishing this latest revision. Husbandman has been, as usual, an amazing consultant and advisor as I've sat pulling out my hair. He's kind of like Chris Harrison in a way.
Maybe the editor will like this latest revision and we'll take our relationship to the next level.
Maybe she won't and we'll break up and it will be time to work on something else. I still haven't crocheted that owl I mentioned earlier in the summer.
The important thing for me right now is to finish the latest rewrite. The requested revisions have been significant and I've struggled to figure out how to take apart the chapter and piece it all back together.
I've been buoyed up about this project over coffee and bagels this morning, reading articles about Harper Lee's relationship with her editor, Tay Hohoff. Another amazing editor - author relationship with beautiful, lasting, results. Tay Hohoff is my latest editor crush. Let's keep this among ourselves.
