Thanks to everyone who helped me brainstorm a new working title for my manuscript. Piecing your suggestions together I’ve come up with:
MAVERICK MILLIONAIRE, MUSICAL MISTRESS
Yesterday the title seemed a problem, today that hurtle seems nothing compared to the revisions I’m facing. I’ve now got a tincy wincy bit of an idea why published authors always make cringy comments on their blogs, Facebook accounts, etc when revisions land in their inbox.
Don’t get me wrong, I love a good challenge so I’m facing this thing head on but I’m only just beginning to realise the significance of each little thing in a book. If I change one seemingly small thing, it amazes me how it has a domino affect on the rest of the book.
It seems I finally got the internal conflict right in this submission, but all the changes the editor has suggested means taking out a LOT of the things that highlighted this conflict so well. So now I’m really exercising my brain trying to think of other ways to highlight this core conflict. It hurts my brain.
So… I just wanna take a moment to cyber toast all my good published writer friends, who still go through this kind of stuff on a regular basis. Thanks for slogging away to write books that captivate us and really hit the spot!!
