Thank you Microsoft for having this feature – I sort of forgive you for all my woes yesterday.
One last once-over tomorrow with fresh eyes and I should be ready to send this puppy back for another round of edits. I have to say, my confidence in my grammatical prowess is shaken–it’s humbling to see all the the things my editor noticed that I completely missed. (For one, I use the word “that” way too much.)
I have to say, there are reasons to hesitate over self-publishing, laziness being the foremost on my mind. Even with all the help I’m getting from a wonderful e-publisher, I find this entire process so much less fun than writing. I keep on glancing sadly down at the Storyist icon on my dock, wishing I were typing away rather than shaking my head at all the typos I made.
