I’ve got about a week before I have to break from my current rewrite to do a page proof on A PERFECT BLOOD. The timing is good. I should have a large chunk of the next one tweaked with the changes I want, which will let me use running through the page proofs to refresh myself on where I left off, and then tweak the new one again for a final time to get the emotion flow as perfect as I can before I ah . . . have to rip it apart for my editor after tour. -laugh-
But eventually they do get on the shelf, obviously, and I can’t touch them ever again, so I want to make sure I’ve got it the way I want it. And trust me, I use every chance I can to tweak. I’ve got such a tweak in mind when I get to the page proof of A PERFECT BLOOD, and I’m anxious to see if I can do it with minimal disruption. If it takes more than the change of a word or two, then I’ll have to stick with what I’ve got. We’ll see.
Lots of soft rain here. Kind of gloomy. It’s a hint of winter in the beginnings of fall. Must drink more tea . . . :-)
