Friday morning I had an I/M conversation with my editor. It went something like this...
"Have you thought about _______?"
"I've considered several things."
"May I suggest ______."
"Wow! I hadn't considered ______, but I can see where making those changes will make _____ and ______ and it will add more to the story and make more sense."
So, after many more I/M's...
"Good, so when can you get those changes to me?"
Sure...Monday morning sounds great."
Couple of things...first--I'm still geeking out that I'm able to write the following sentence. "Friday morning I had an I/M conversation with my editor..." I've never had an editor before.
And second, I had only part of Friday and part of Saturday to do some major editing. I stayed up last night working on the story. Once the clock struck midnight I stopped. I made a decision back in grad school that I wouldn't do any writing (for profit or potential profit...) or homework on Sundays. The process has served me well so far.
Tomorrow morning I'm going to wake up early...or I might stay up late and do some editing after midnight tonight...and work on my project. I hope I'm making progress.
