Bored

My editor required some minor alterations to the MS before it goes to copy edit (this is
book 2, Stormlord Rising, that I am talking about). Trouble is, they necessitate re-reading and tweaking the whole MS. And believe me, after so many countless reads, your own book begins to pall. A lot.
Pix is of my grandson picking raspberries in New Jersey. The astute among you may realise that is not a raspberry bush. I am not the only one who gets bored when there is work to be done...
I'd rather climb a peach tree too.

Heck of a way to pick raspberries. I can re-read your books, but not all at once like you are having to.

Yeah, I hear you. I had the same thing to do on the SW ms. Not a huge biggie on the surface, but much fiddling ensued. And it surely does eat up the time! But you know what they say. If you end up with a better book ... *g*

One of these days I am going to count just how many times I read a book before it goes to the printer...50? I wouldn't be surprised.
