One goes out, many come in

OK, second set of edits on The Full Moon Affair are off to the editor. Hopefully he’ll agree with these updates and we’ll be ready to go to proofreading/galley soon.

It’s amazing, I printed out this story and wow, did I find a number of areas I wanted to clean up and a small plot point I needed to resolve. I find it so much easier to edit on paper than on screen. Maybe it’s just because I’m an old fart, but I find my eye slides past things on screen too easily. Plus it’s easier to flip back through a couple of printed pages to review something than scroll up and then scroll down and then scroll up again and then back to where I need to make the changes.

Plus, editing on real paper means I can edit away from distractors like email and FB and Chiefs Planet and other web sites I tend to hang out on. Go grab a cup of coffee at the local coffee shop, open up the red pen and go to work.

But, just because I sent these edits off, doesn’t mean I can rest on my laurels. I still need to finish copying and formatting my old Terra Incognito articles for an editor to help me whip them into shape for a non-fiction book. Then I need to write a couple of more stories. Need to contact a couple of conventions about attending this year and . . .

Oh yeah, and my publisher just sent me the edits for Strikeforce: Falcon #1 – Flashpoint. So, back to the printer. *grin*
