With sweaty palms and a knotted stomach, I turned in the first draft of my Chinese Whisperings story last week. Experiencing typical writer’s angst about whether the story would be up to snuff, I waited with great trepidation for my editor’s comments. With two series in the anthology, there are two editors – Paul and Jodi – whom I mentioned in my previous post. Paul is my editor and I am so happy to be working with him. There’s nothing like a good editor to lift your story from being good to great. I received his comments last night and I have to say I agree with 95% of them! The other five per cent can be addressed through the second draft process. I also had some excellent feedback from Jodi, which I very much appreciated. After nearly a year of writing stories on my own, it’s so nice to collaborate not only with other writers, but editors who know their stuff. Fabulous!
