A WICKED Editorial Letter

Filed under: Touching the Surface

I recently got my very first editorial letter. *gasp* 

Those things are a little scary, even when they’re exciting.  I’ve wanted to tell you about what it feels like to get that letter and make those changes, but it’s really hard to put it all into words. The thoughts have been tumbling around in my head.  Finally, I figured out how to tell you when I went to see WICKED this weekend. The author/editor relationship is a lot like the relationship between Elphaba and Galinda.  I’m serious!  At the end of the day, when the book is finished and the story closes, if you’ve done it right, it should feel something like this…

I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you…

But until that day…I’m guessing it feels a little closer to this…

Yup–I’ve got an awful long way to go.  *grin*  

Back to revisions.  Love you Anica. *heart squish*
