After working on Peter for so long, I of course want to think it’s very clean. Nearly perfect, right? But I’m also a reasonable, logical person (at least some of the time), so I know there will be stuff to fix. Maybe even a lot.
I’m really kind of scared.
It’s like handing your baby over to a surgeon and not being sure what will come back. Lots of stitches? Only a few scars?
And having been an editor so long myself, you’d think I’d have more insight or whatever, but it’s very different being on this side of things.
So that’s what I’m insecure about at the moment. That and the revisions I’ll need to do on Changers. My critique group will be tearing that manuscript apart in the coming weeks as well.
