Title:
The First Flight of Raymond Sands

WHAT WORKS: In the report on the first section of the book still nicely ironic that Blake the Self-Help Guru could be so oblivious to your needs, and it was satisfying when you were able to walk out on him. In short, you’ve done an excellent job.

WHAT NEEDS WORK:

CHARACTER: Probably your largest remaining problem is that your sister’s immaculate kitchen. It’s as if your characters don’t really inhabit the places where they are.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

When you asked me to reserve a slot for you, you wanted to know if it was time to begin line-editing. I think it is. to the other editing. Also, I’ve again included a sample page of line-editing in Word’s Track Changes feature.

So let me know if you’d like to go ahead. Also, let me know if you’d like me to work with a pencil on page or electronically, with Track Changes. And as always, if you have any questions on this report, please feel free to ask.
