Hello Everyone! As most of you know, I'm in the final stages of revising a memoir, readying it for publication. Only last week I read that the medical establishment has identified a new malady affecting writers: Revision Brain Syndrome. I've got it bad!
Over the past year, I've also learned from my brilliant editor, Elizabeth K. Kracht at Kimberley Cameron and Associates Literary Agency, that there are segments in every manuscript that need to be refined, segments that need to be amplified, and segments, no matter how wonderful, that need to be ditched.
But rather than hit DELETE on one of those pieces, I thought I'd share it with you, as it has to do with a remarkable person, Barbra Streisand, at a breakthrough moment in her career. A moment I was privileged to witness.
