I'm almost finished with the final read-through of Clara and the Cowboy. I don't know why, but this read-through has taken me a long time. Much longer than I anticipated. Which makes me ask - WHY?
I have a couple of theories.
1. Busy, busy time of year. Orthodontist appointments, driving school hours, award ceremonies, lifeguard recertification, piano recitals, graduation parties, bridal showers...seems like there's something every day. May has been a really busy month.
2. Reading with better educated eyes. Having been through a couple of content edits now, I'm really working to avoid any descriptive errors, klunky sentences, places where I'm unclear. My goal is to make my story the best it can be.
I'd like to be a rabbit and hop through this content edit, but I'm more of a tortoise. But as they say, "slow and steady wins the race." I'm not so much concerned with winning as finishing well.
What project are you working on, and do you feel like a tortoise or a hare?
