I’ve been diligently working through the editor’s edits. It’s odd, having already written the book, to say that I can now start to see it as a real book, but I can. The shape of it is becoming clearer, more focussed. The fat is being trimmed, the verbs sharpened. They say “writing is all about rewriting” and it’s true. It’s an exciting process.
I use the Stickies app on the Mac a lot. I have stickies of reminders, quotes I find helpful and advice I need to remember to follow. It’s always open when I work. I also, as above, use the app to jot down notes to myself of the pages and sections that need more substantial edits.
