Editing letter

My life as a poem.

I've started working on Dogsled Dreams with my awesome editor! Yeah!
Apparently I use "was" and "were" too much. Boo.

I sent a revised chapter today and already have it marked and returned! Yeah!
It is once again covered in little red marks. Boo.

I received a full manuscript request for book two from an agent! Yeah!
She wants me to add another 15,000 words. Boo.

Since I do have a day job - I'm envisioning long nights in my future. But I'm living my dream!

All the best as you move through it. I'm sure you'll do a great job.

I have to agree with what Sarah said. It is awesome to read about editor letters, requests for revision, and the rest.

You are living the dream--yours and others! I'm really tickled pink for you.

PS. I'm getting out the "find" section in word and looking for was and were!

Wow--things are moving and shaking for you right now!

I am trying to exterminate most of the was/were from my manuscript. Those words are invisible to me when I'm writing. It's so great to know others struggle with that as well!

Congrats on the happily full life!
