Rewriting My Third Novel, Black Matilda Pt. 5

Wow…  Now that is a lot of red ink (maybe blood, sweat and tears?) 

When I received the edited manuscript, I wondered if my editors used up all their red pens just for fun.  Some pages were minor corrections while other pages were hard to see past the sea of red.  But every correction was completely worth it.  I can’t really thank my editors enough for all the hard work they went through even if it means more hard work for me.  I owe them a lot.

But you know what?  The big edit is done!

I made all the needed corrections and fixed others that came up in the process.  It took a few weeks with other craziness jumping in the way (I am looking at you, old motherboard, crashing connections, old and new windows, and a host of other things… yeesh).  I mean, you get used to the COVID restrictions, breathing in the smoke from the forest fires, never mind the election process and all that jazz, but did I really need more stuff on my plate?  Does anyone at this point?

Anyway, it feels really good to have moved forward on this one.  I am doing a finesse edit then its off to my beta readers again to catch any last foibles in it.  Fingers crossed that it’s all minor stuff if anything at all.

I can’t wait to get Black Matilda out there for you guys to read!  I am pretty excited about that.  I could use the accomplishment this year, if you know what I mean.

While were on the subject of change, (this is a really bad segue, but sometimes you gotta force these things) get out there and vote for your congress people, your senators and your president!
