I seem, magically, to be keeping the same exact rhythm, turning over each new draft of my manuscript in one month.
My publisher, Riverhead, sent me the last round of comments one month ago, and I just now emailed the new draft.
The actual re-write this time took me only a few days.
And the main objective was accomplished, I think: To come up, in the last chapter, with “lessons” from the lives in the book that are catchy, not at all corny and actually meaningful.
We’ll see what my editor says.
