I just received the final line edits for Tangled Past and am back on deadline. This time I have to get them in by Saturday night. So I know what I’ll be doing New Year’s Eve and New Year’s day. (Line edits are the grammar corrections as well as those final nitpicky notes about repetitions that are SO important to catch.
I love the editor for catching them though I can occasionally be caught muttering under my breath at them too. You know like the kid who is being forced to eat his vegetables even though he knows they good for him? I often get a headache from hitting myself up on the side of the head and muttering “how did I miss that?”
Anyway, I’ll be off Twitter (and Facebook, not that I’m over there often) until they’re sent back to my editor.
So if you’re off partying on New Year’s Eve, blow your horn an extra time for me, give that special someone an extra smooch since Gizmo Guy probably won’t want to come near me and my strange muttering. (But don’t feel sorry for me, we never party or anything on New Year’s Eve. I’d usually just be sitting in the family room watching a movie or something with my laptop on my lap as I twittered and such. Which is probably where I’ll still be, though I’ll be editing instead of twittering.)
