Jeez! When I sent my manuscript to the production company, I thought I'd ferreted out ALL the mistakes. NOT SO.
When I received the Kindle copy, and started line editing, I found mistake after mistake. Costly mistakes now that I'm paying for each mistake after
five - the first five mistakes being free with the cost of the production.
I've learned so much during this edit. First, I've learned how to line edit more carefully. I've learned not to be in such a hurry to publish that I don't take time to delete all the bloopers.
I'm learning NOT to use so many BUTS AND ANDS to begin sentences. I didn't realize I used them with abandon.
I'm learning to omit some of the colloquialisms.
I'm just learning learning learning. Darn. I thought I knew so much and now I'm learning after all these years that I don't know much about writing AT ALL.
Here's to a cleaner manuscript next time around.
Here's to bringing all I've learned to the table the next time around.
Here's to a brighter publishing future for all of us who write.
And a better reading future to those of us who read.
And to less mistakes on those books on Kindle.
I hate mistakes.
Blessings on your life today.
And please if you have anything to add about editing, please give me a comment.
Do you buy Amazon books for Kindle? Are you pleased with what you've bought?
Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!
