So I’m moving along swimmingly and open Chapter 6 of my manuscript, where I find, above the title, this comment by my editor:
This is the best chapter in the book so far.
Fantastic! He loved the chapter! Everything is great, the book will be a success.
Wait. What was wrong with the previous five chapters? Why weren’t they the best chapters in the book so far?
My god, there is a flaw in the first five chapters. The book will be a failure.
Oh wait, one chapter has to be better than the others.
But which one?
