Rejoice with me, Fearless Readers! I have succeeded! Edit-palooza, in which I give a final edit to an entire 90k novel in one three-day weekend, has come to an end, and I have emerged victorious!
I still feel weird about a 20k chunk or so where the prose isn't as brisk as I would like. But on Monday I am going to le Kinko's and having the bad boy printed out for a final comb. I need to do this for many reasons. One: a final read through edit. I got make sure Faery is spelled right everywhere, and it's witchdoctor not Witch Doctor. Or worse, Which Doctor. I'm still not super sure my male MC is where I want him to be. I might gather all his dialog and go through it. Make sure it all sounds like it came out of a British mouth. :) I might have to do some more research for that. Ahem.
Also, I have the worse notes on this story than I have on any other. I need to take notes on spells and magic and relationships. And who did I kill? A good kill list is a good thing to have.
Now I go and watch me some Firefly. Might have me a little chocolate milk, while I'm at it. Livin' large and in charge. That's me.
