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.


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.


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.
