The revision letter and marked-up manuscript is here for MALCOLM AT MIDNIGHT! And it’s not too bad. In fact, I think I can do this!
I’ve been waiting for a package from my editor all week, so when I took E to baseball practice at 5 last night and saw it leaning on the doorstep, I squealed a little. E rolled his eyes at me as only an almost-seventh grader can do. “Hey!” I said in my defense, “You aren’t quite old enough to know what it’s like to work really hard on something and want it for years and then have it finally come true. But I hope someday you do.”
Because it feels really, really good.
