By some wonderful Cosmic arrangement I have connected with an editor, the kind of editor I really need. She is sharp and clear, and so able to strike out unneeded text and unneeded scenes. Amazing! This has made me truly comprehend what a rigorous discipline it is to write for children. I mean, you can’t just write as much as you want! My metaphor for that is like having a beautiful embroidered and furlined winter coat and having to wrestle it into a teacup! What if what you want to say just doesn’t fit!?
Working with my editor has given me new inspiration and confidence in writing for children. It has led to some changes to Little Star Lost, which you will have a chance to enjoy in the new softcover.
