Revising, editing, and looking ahead

All right, the revisions to The Full Moon Affair are en route back to the editor. I read the entire story again and I think I resolved the issues I was worrying about last night. The good part about doing a complete reread is I caught a couple of errors we’d missed in the initial edits and a few I’d added when I made the revisions last evening . . . amazing how cutting out a word just might change the context of a paragraph.

There’s no question that editing is almost as much an art as it is a science. I have more and more appreciation what my friends who make their living as editors go through.

Now, it’s time to get back to work on those other writing projects. I suspect it won’t be too long before I either have my second set of revisions from this editor or the first edits to Mouse Trap arrive. The publisher let me know that’s almost ready to go also, so I hope both of these stories will be released soon.

Gonna be a busy year.
