I finished writing and editing my book, Guardian, and thought I'd print a hard copy to give my critique partners to make corrections on. But then I thought I'd go through it quickly before I gave it away.
OH MY WORD! I can't believe how many things I want to change now that I see the words on actual paper! I've always known you should print out your book and go through it once more, just to be sure, but dang! I didn't anticipate marking the whole thing up myself.
Let this be a lesson to you, my friends. Rather than be embarrassed, read it personally on hard copy. You'll be SO glad you did. Now I'll be proud of the draft I give my alpha readers!
