So, I have my book baby in my hand.
It’s been read, reread, checked and checked again.
No room, or chance for error, right?
I received a (much appreciated) email from a reviewer, alerting me to a couple of missed punctuation marks and silly niggly spelling errors. She is aware of how much this book means to me, and knows how I want to put as perfect a version out there, as possible.
But how is this possible? As I said before, I read and reread countless times!
The problem is that I am too close to the story. No matter now much I read it, I gloss over bits, so end up missing thoes niggles.
I requested ideas from my main writing support group on Facebook (details below) and was given some great ideas:
- read using a ruler so the next lines can’t distract you
- read backwards, either…
