Never quite perfect

One problem with cutting things during revision is that with lines gone, what is left sometimes doesn’t flow as smoothly as it used to. Or two words are used too close together. So then there are more changes, and more, and more.

I like looking at it on the Kindle, since I only change stuff that really seems off, and it’s easier than reading the laptop screen for hours. I take notes on a piece of paper of what to change. After several passes to clean up minor issues, and then to clean up after cleaning up, I finally did my ‘last check.’ Which resulted in a page full of things to change. I somehow doubt I can ever read one of my novels and not find several things to change, but I’m taking a break from this one for now.
