Some of you already know that one of my novels was recently accepted by a publisher. Today, I was e-mailed the first round of edits that they want, and I'm terrified to open the files. I'm afraid they will want too many changes, changes I don't like, or changes I don't feel I can do. This probably sounds like my usual anxiety-ridden rambling, but it stuff that could happen, no matter how likely or unlikely it is. I've gotten much better at handling the kind of comments that an editor is likely to give, but until now I've always had the freedom to pick and choose which comments I'll use in my revisions. Here, I don't have that. Anyone who has been through this process who could offer suggestions on what to expect would be greatly appriciated.
