With the live read edit getting bogged down. I’m starting to go and insert the changes from chapters that have already been completed and adding a few more with a final read through myself. Thus the final edit is going to begin now rather than after the live read edit ends as was originally planned.
You would think, after more than a dozen and a half edits, that there wouldn’t be many more changes to make. But there are. In fact, here is what the first two pages looked like after the live read. Note all the yellow which are changes:
Most of the changes are not major. They are moving a sentence around, changing a descriptive word to a synonym, and taking out some redundancy. But they are still changes. And they still need made.
