A couple of my real life friends keep asking me when Oasis is going to be published. I always tell them “As soon as I finish editing it.”
Well, assuming there’s anyone out there that cares, I’ve got two useful meters in the sidebar.
They match my process:
Line Edits – I’m going through line by line looking for typos and other errors.
Final Read – I’m reading Oasis out loud to my favorite editor (my wife, Aurora). Reading aloud helps me fix those nagging little phrasing issues and allows me to give things a nice polish. I hope.
