My tendency to write tightly has apparently overcome common sense once or twice and suddenly people are appearing fully dressed or completely nekkid where in the paragraph previous they were otherwise attired.
Also, my black moment is lame. But I can fix that! Thank God she called me on it, though. It's like in school when you'd turn in an essay that had a weak spot and you'd pray the teacher would just skim over it -- and when she didn't, you'd think, "Oh crap. Better fix it." But you knew it would be better after you did?
So this weekend I'll be editing and taking breaks to toss food down the Monkey Children's gullets.
Good luck with the edits - always good to be called on the things you need to fix. A good editor pushes you to your best.
Yay on receiving edits. It feels good to make your story stronger.
Thanks, Sandra. I'm very happy with my editor and all the things she's caught. She knows her stuff!
Jorrie, yes it does! It's like taking a chunk of charcoal and turning it into a diamond.
