Falling Over -- Hearts and Swords Copy Edits DONE!

Falling Over -- Hearts and Swords Copy Edits DONE! Literally worked FIVE hours on chapters one and two of Heart and Sword yesterday. Read through it about three times, 5 outside critiques. About 50 hrs on the edits, I think, because the stories are so close to my own heart. DUH! How come what's in my head isn't as brilliant on the page? Thanks for all the support.

May you enjoy your day.

Congratulations! I'm sure the finished work is wonderful even if not "quite" how you hoped.
"Ideals are like stars; you will not succeed in touching them with your hands. But like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them you will reach your destiny." (Carl Schurz)
Art, ideals, etc, all are perfect in the abstract but the striving to reach it is what makes it wonderful in the now.(Me)
