I picked up my very first romance the other day to have a look, just a quick peek really, only to find spelling and grammar errors on the very first page! ARGH! What was I thinking when I edited the darn thing? Well, needless to say, two weeks later and many diet cokes, I have almost edited the book. I say almost because I am only on page 112 out of 168. Keep in mind that is single spaced and on 8x11 paper. Sigh.
It does have an up side. I have added a few little quirky exchanges and some more background adding approx 4k words to the original.
Still editing away though.
