Call Me Elle

The story goes that when Elle Macpherson was asked in an interview what she likes to read, she replied that she never reads anything she hasn’t written herself.

It’s probably not even true, but it’s a great story, so in our family whenever one of us is reading something they wrote themselves, we call them Elle.

For the last few days I’ve been revising my book, using some enormously useful comments by my wise and generous friend Jane, a dictionary and the Style Manual. When I’m done I’ll send it out to another reader and then when it comes back, I’ll do another Elle.
