First reader has finished. She likes it. But now we go over the novel with her questions which she’s written on a yellow pad. I’ve yet to see that and I fear it. I know there will be pages and pages.
I’m trying to get myself in a mood that isn’t defensive. Not easy. I tell myself to simply listen. I don’t have to do anything she says. Who does she think she is anyway?
Not a good attitude. I am taking a deep breath. Here we go.
