Endurance editing.

I love my copy editor. Even though she takes my joinywords apart. She rocks like a rocking thing, and not just because she writes compliments in the margins of my manuscripts. It's also because she makes me look un-stupid. Which is harder than you'd think.

And as for marathons, I have not stirred from this chair, I sent the boy out for beer, and the cats are starting to come in to sniff me to see if I died....

...but I completed one pass through the page proofs and one pass through the copy edited manuscript. Just me and my green pencil.

If nothing else, I'm really prepared for draft II of Worldwired now. If I ever get my brain back. Although I think I'm ready to be done with this trilogy now.
