A follow-up to my “Editing in Weirdland” post: I got word the other day that my editor Julia still likes my writing, is engaged by the story, and even wants to read the blog post I wrote about her.
This means it’s entirely possible (Highly likely? Probable? Even possibly a sure thing?) that she hasn’t run off with my ideas to negotiate book and movie deals at my expense, nor have her eyelids turned inside out from the sheer despicability of my writing. And maybe even that she hasn’t been forced to eat chalk.
Holy freak-out, Batman, I guess this means that instead of assuming the worst (or even the over-the-top best), I just need to calm down and get back to work, and throw away that lease I was about to sign for the apartment in Weirdland.
Hurray! And as my writing buddy Lauren says, “Onward!”
