Editor is reading it right now.
Editor is pumping her fist mouthing “You nailed it, Jean.”
Editor is calling Caldecott Honor illustrator and saying, “Your other projects will have to wait.”
Editor is reading it to her staff and they’re toasting me.
Editor is waiting to read it over her lunch break.
Editor is thinking it’s sweet.
Editor is thinking it’s good.
Editor is thinking it’s okay.
Editor is thinking blah, blah, blah.
She’s wondering, “What was Jean thinking?”
She’s wondering, “What was Jean drinking?”
Editor is losing her lunch.
Editor is telling her staff, “Those were 2 minutes of my life I’ll never get back.”
She is telling her mom, “I just saved the world from another awful picture book.”
She’s asking for matches.
She’s taking up smoking.
She’s holding a match to my manuscript.
I’ve got mail.
