Preparing chapter 9 for the manuscript last night was absolutely brutal. I feel like the chapter literally kicked my ass.
There were so many things that simply did not sound right once I let the TTS start reading it back to me. And here I thought I had done a good job with it during FINAL edits. Boy was I wrong.
There were at least three sections that underwent major rewrites to smooth out the kinks and countless little tweaks made. Another 126 words were cut in total. I literally felt exhausted by the end of it all.
Now I want to revisit the chapter again tonight before officially putting it to bed. Hopefully, when I go through it again, I will feel much better about it.
Editing is sometimes so frustrating. Especially when something has been edited so much that you expect it to be done.
