Just when I thought my book was finally ready to be published, I read it again and found more mistakes and then have to start all over again.
I sent my book out to several people a few weeks ago and they sent me feedback with highlights and notes so that I will know what needed to be fixed. Up until recently I thought my grammar was correct considering I used spell and grammar check “After The Deadline” which told me I was right. Apparently not.
I went through the book correcting everything that was highlighted. I did search and replace and fixed countless issues and read the book again to be sure I had it right. Naturally I found more errors. I fixed the new errors, but to be 1,000,000% sure that it is ready, I will have to read it yet one more time.
The more I read my book, the faster I get at reading it. When I first began, it used to take me a week or more to read it, now it takes 2 days. I guess the more you read the same story, the easier it gets. Now if only I could read other books that fast, I would have a bigger library under my belt.
I will start reading it again tomorrow from the beginning and hope that I don’t have to make any more changes. I feel that when I can read my entire book without opening the document file on the computer to fix something, that is when it’s finished.
I’m going to be blind by the time this book is done lol. At least I’m learning better grammar which will help me be a better blogger.
