A couple of other authors have said that the worst thing about getting these notes is that you know the editor is right and I do (mostly, I don’t believe teenagers wouldn’t get Friends references!). But why does that make it harder instead of easier? I don’t know.
What I do know is that for the next couple of weeks I need to knuckle down like I’ve never knuckled before (come to think of it, I’m not sure I ever have knuckled before…) (Wait. Is that rude?) So that means going dark, internet-wise. You know, mostly. During the week.
And to make myself laugh, I’ve been doing this – I sing the music and everything. If you’re feeling miserable, you should totally try it. It cheers me right up, oddly enough.
