And what if you don’t like it? Is it a case of tough cookies? To be honest, whatever you say – good or bad – I know in my heart of hearts my story will not change. The plot will remain the same. The perspective. The narrative.
However. I will allow that red pen of yours to mark an extra comma, to cross out too many exclamation points. To scribble out a potential plot hole. I will attempt to swallow my pride and come to the tragic realisation that, alas……I am not the flawless writer I thought I was….!
On a final note, I beg of you; whatever you do, please – be kind.
Be kind my dear friend.
My heart awaits in anticipation.
