I actually welcomed my editor’s thoughts

Melissa: It must have been a very, very difficult task to edit this book. To have to guide you in how to tell this intensely personal story.

Emily Rapp: I actually welcomed my editor’s thoughts because she’s a genius and she totally got what I was doing. We had a weird mind-meld.

Anonymous Guest: Which one was harder, writing it or editing it?

Emily Rapp: Writing. Absolutely.
