re: the subject of this post

Revisions for Dream Boy, my YA novel with Mary Crockett for Sourcebooks, are in (the first round, at least). As part of my effort to show what it’s like to write with a partner, here’s a curated list of recent e-mail subject lines.

    Mary, not you! Both of us! (I believe I started the thread that began nag, nag, nag, nag, nag. But I didn’t include it because it was outside of my little window.) I’m sure when you scan your own e-mails (if you don’t delete anything, like me) you will be redeemed.

  2. madelyn says:

    Aw, thanks. Fortunately I had plenty of e-mails to choose from.

  3. My goodness! I can be annoying!

    Laughed so hard…

    That’s a great narrative arc–from the depths of “completely lost” to the “here you!” with a nice FW to tie things up. Love it!
