Several months ago, my mom (and proofreader!) helped me brainstorm the revisions an agent had just asked of me. I was petrified about not getting the changes "right," so she agreed to be my sounding board, as we bounced (sometimes outlandish) ideas off of each other: What about this? No, no -- how about this? Well, sure, but what if I have So-and-So do Such-and-Such? Hmm. Don't think that'll work. Okay, but what if he does Such-and-Such instead?
And so on. You get the idea. I remember with great clarity the seriousness of that conversation, but looking back, it was really something along the lines of THIS <--video found at The Gatekeeper's blog. Hilarious stuff!! LOL
