Joys of Editing
Posted Monday, 02/14/22
I'm the Queen of Typos. The yellow sticky notes indicate deletions, re-writes or inserting new scenes for Blood & Soul. The pink sticky notes are used to mark pages with simple yet absurd typos.
There are multiples on nearly every page!
One of the worst misses was in regards to the parents of the main character, Emma Beckett. I declared them "lifelong vegetarians" in the preceding novel (Bloodlust), yet I had them eating hamburgers and hot dogs in Blood & Soul. I cursed and talked to myself in disgust when I realized the error, but it's all fixed now.
The first edit is complete, but I'll be re-reading the book two or three more times before submitting it to my publisher.
Wish me luck . . .
