Few are as tempted as I by an extractor.
Not some computer-y thing.
Not a dentistry nightmare.
Not a Navy SEAL with particularly stealthy components (although I would never turn away a Navy SEAL and any of his fine components).
I am simply wistful for a studious, ambitious, detail-oriented soul to kindly extract a single character from my nearly complete manuscript. Although this character is rather intricately involved in almost every storyline, she and I just don’t gel. There is no affinity between us. There is no “je ne sais quoi.”
Kindly remove her at once, Mr. Extractor and there will be a cookie and kisses for you… particularly if you have a little of that SEAL-thing going on.
