Stand-In Groom–Edits Are FINISHED!

Monday, March 17, 2008

desk-dancing.jpgSince I ended up spending most of the day yesterday shopping, I just now finished making all of the changes in the file of Stand-In Groom. My editor is on vacation this week, so I’m going to wait until next Monday to e-mail it to her. But it’s finished!!!

I only ended up cutting 1,573 words and a total of six pages from the length.

I still need to write my dedication and acknowledgments, figure out three authors whose writing style I would compare mine to, and determine 1–3 key issues the book deals with that someone could use to help a friend “through the softened message of fiction” for my April 1 deadline.

One of the things that I had to do while reading through the manuscript for edits was to make changes based on decisions I’ve made since starting the second novel, as well as check on details that I need to make sure remain consistent through the series. Here’s a photo of my continuity notes (sorry it’s blurry):

    Congratulations!

    The picture reminds me of when I used to work in retail. The mgt team who was off for the weekend would corner the team who was stuck working, and do the “happy dance.” It was cruel, but oh so much fun!
