Working hard on Confluence edits

Well, Sherylyn is, anyway.
Well, Sherylyn is, anyway.

Our editor sent back further edits for Confluence.  They’re due  on Monday.

Around this time in the editing process Sherylyn does most of the work.  I get to relax (mostly), and every so often follow along to see what the edits are and whether I agree with them.

“Yes, yes, yes, yes. Sure. That sounds good.  Hmmm. Not sure about this one. I’m going to change it. Are you okay with this change?  Yes, yes, yes, yes.”

The book is off to the copy editor on Monday.

We’re far enough removed from Confluence now to see some things we’d like to improve, but we don’t have the time.  I think every writer does that, can’t let the story go.  What is the definition of done?

This final tidy up has cleaned the book up nicely, though.  It’s good.

Last night over dinner we had a long chat about what we learned writing these three books, what we’d do again, and what we’d do differently next time.

I might put it into a blog one day.

So nice to hear you’re looking forward to it, Erin.

Really pleased, and your timing was perfect, for after the initial, “Yay, we’re done, and I like this book,” comes the inevitable, “Oh, I really hope it’s okay.”

So thank you. 🙂
