Edits, Edits

Edits are finished and have been sent off. They'll come back with more changes, and for me that means more worry. But it's all worth it. This round I discovered that I use too many filler words such as 'get' 'got' 'feel' and 'went.' I can see how vague they are and am extremely embarrassed that I ever relied on them as much as I did. But . . . better to learn now than later.

My editor said the next around will be 'inline' edits, which means you're really digging deep at word usage and sentence structure--I think. Count on me to be stressed. Really stressed. This thing is happening for real. Hard to believe The Time Seekers will be coming out soon!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday. As you can see, a tornado did not carry me away. That's a relief. Take care!

  1. Oh dear... "digging deep at word usage and sentence structure" sounds about as much fun as a root canal, but it will all be worth it in the end! Well done, and I look forward to seeing The Time Seekers :o)

    1. Thank you, Jane! I'm getting more excited as it shapes up into a real book.
