Getting there one page at a time

I am presently putting myself through that torture that most authors inflict upon themselves - the read-through. This is where you repeatedly scan through your WIP looking for the flaws that you are convinced you missed the last time you read it through. The ironic, and all too common, result is that you tinker with something that was fine and thus create a problem (which you often won't see until the next read-through).

I will eventually (under deadline pressure if past experience is any guide) break out of this cycle. When I do so the WIP is going off for its second round of third-party editing. When this is done, and the issues acted upon, the book will be ready to go.

Drum roll.
