This is what happens when you write most of a book in just four weeks

Got an editorial letter yesterday for a book that ended up having to be written in hurry. A big chunk of the letter was devoted to praising a certain character. Let's call him Tom Smith. Tom Smith was so intriguing, such a great foil to the other characters, a truly masterful creation.

My first thought was: "Who in the hell is Tom Smith?"

His name had been four or five different names, and was only changed to Tom Smith in the last few harried days.
