Oh, you will laugh. It is 4 hours before deadline and I just slipped in to make one tiny change to this blog, which I finished a week ago. I apparently hit the wrong key because the entire damned thing just disappeared. So I am recreating it from what I laughingly call "memory." Wish me luck.
Note: The illustrations are, in order, a buggy, a smelter, and a senator. Thank you.
Last month I finished the first draft of the novel I have been working on since July. I spent the next two weeks running it through spellcheck. That may seem excessive, so let me explain.
I think he actually meant to say it would be no biggy to arrange a meeting with the senator. But what do I know? I'm just the author.
And then there is the unforgettable scene in which my hero is chased by "two guys with nuns."
But now I am doing a fast read-through of the book and I have discovered I love proofing on my iPad. For some reason it goes much faster than on my other computers. Maybe because the machine is designed for reading text?
Soon I will be done with the read-through and then all I will need to do is edit. And edit. And edit...
