It has been very humbling to learn I can tell a great story, but suck rocks at grammar! LOL… well not really lol… unless you mean lol like this:
That said, I have enjoyed to some extent the editing process, though it may make my eyes want to bleed at times at how many missed commas, passive pronouns and verbs and ugh…. Just… ugh.
Can you tell I’m ambivalent about this process? I so want it to be done and send to an editor and start focusing on the next book.
But I can see how much stronger it is making the writing so for every time I have this kind of a moment:
And I smile because I fixed it, and can that means a better book for y’all. Hope springs eternal that this draft, and it’s subsequent structural fixes that I must do with it (yeah, I have 2 scenes that need a nice tune up and will increase the drama greatly towards the end) is all for the best. Now… I NEED TO MAKE MY DEADLINES!!! ARRRRRRRGH!!!!!
