Question Moving a switch - confirm my wiring diagram?

As part of a remodeling project in which a closet door is being moved over several feet, I need to move the closet's light switch. To keep things as simple as possible, I'd like to keep as much of what's already there intact, which means running power through the light and then to the switch. I'd like to use the current switch box to junction my wires and run a new wire from the light to the new switch location.

Could someone take a gander at my diagram? I know it's the right way to run power from a light to a switch, but due to the junctions at the old switch location just wanted to verify, because this is in the middle of a circuit and power goes on from here to another part of the room.

Also, I'm not showing ground wires, just for the sake of simplicity for this diagram.

Looks okay. Remember the old switch box must remain accessible (can't be buried).

Great

Great! And yes, I'm just going to put a plate over the old location- no big deal since it's inside a closet. Thanks!
