I’ve found myself casually throwing around the reference to let others know just how grown up I am.
“My editor was talking to me the other day . . .”
“I have to let my editor know . . .”
“So my editor said . . .”
“DID YOU KNOW I HAVE AN EDITOR!?”
Sometimes this is accompanied by a little happy dance, usually on the nearest table followed immediately by an escort of security. It’s fabulous.
Anyhow, I submitted my manuscript, eager to received comments like, “Perfect!” “A real page-turner!!” “Instant classic!!!” “Five star writing!!!!!!!!!!!”
Warning: Multiple exclamation points are always a sign of the exponential emotions which my writing elicits. Read with caution!!!!!!!!!!
The comment I did receive was, “Great! You’re third in line.”
Oh yeah. I’m not the only writer in the world. I’m just the only writer in MY world.
