Stand-In Groom–The Edits Begin

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

I’ve gotten everything I need to work on the final edits for Stand-In Groom (final, that is until it goes to the copy editor). My goal is to have hand-written corrections completed on the hardcopy of the manuscript finished by Friday, and electronic changes completed by the end of the day Monday, which I’d already planned as a day off for this very purpose. Since that means this will be taking up all of my free time, I’ll just be checking in with my daily progress for the rest of the week.

My plan is to spend two to three hours at the library at my undergrad college (about five minutes from my house) each evening this week—away from the distractions of TV, e-mail, Facebook, blog stats, etc., and concentrate on copy editing and making the necessary changes to the manuscript.

Monday 3/10: Was at the library from 7 — 9 p.m. Reviewed all of my continuity notes—notes I’ve made since starting Menu for Romance to make sure that little details, like the types of cars people drive to eye color, all the way to big things, like the changed backstory for the main characters of MFR, get changed—and then started editing. It’s been a really long time since I’ve read this manuscript, and I found myself laughing over some of the things I didn’t remember writing.

Completed: Hand-written changes to chapters 1–4.
