I am 20 pages from finished with The Paris Notebook. Today I wrote out the new black moment scene sequence. All new words!! That was a nice change of pace from revising lines here and a paragraph there. The ms. is so much better now; I’m glad I took the time to do this. I’m glad I can listen to editors without getting an attitude about it. That’s so key to publishing. To be able to work with an editor for the best book possible and not let ego get in the way.
I still need to make some changes in those final 20 pages but am saving them for tomorrow.
