The Words Every Writer Longs to Hear
I completed my next article that is due to my editor this week. I have to admit to being a tiny bit nervous. I wasn't quite sure if I had written exactly what she was looking for. It ended up being shorter than my normal articles, so I wasn't certain if I explored each topic in enough detail.
After reading it through several times and making a couple of changes, I composed my email to her, reviewed the article two more times, made one more change, and then sent it off.
I received a quick response, which only heightened my level of anxiety. I took a deep breath and opened the email, which read:
"Cheryl, it’s absolutely perfect. I wouldn’t change a thing."
Phew! Now I can go back to breathing normally.
