My Editor: So what’s the problem? Why are you in panic mode?
Me: Well…listen. I have a scene about this and a scene about that and then this other scene here and I think Im just going to cut all of these scenes because they cant all go into chapter 2. Its going to make the chapter waaaaay too long.
My Editor: You do know that you can make a chapter 3, right? And a 4…and a 5.
Me: Oh. Panic attack diverted I’ll take a nap now.
…and that is why I LOVE my editing team!
