My agent asked me to work up a proposal for a thing, which I won't describe at the moment, so I have a lot of reading to do.
I want to finish Kate before I start anything else so I hope to complete that this weekend. Over the intervening years, while in some ways I can see how my thinking is the same, in other ways, it's not. It's good to know I think I'm smarter now than then. Some elements I have issues with now about the book weren't issues to my very excellent and well-respected editors at Atheneum. I don't know if I will ever understand that or if I will simply chalk it up to that's how things were done then. I wonder if Jane Austen would have changed anything in Pride and Prejudice had she been able to have another pass at it. Would she have given Mr Darcy a first name?
