If it takes such a long time to edit, you’d think the end product would be perfect–or damn near close. This is not the case.
I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time just trying to arrange characters in a room–and never mind getting a character out of a room. If more than two characters are talking, I enter pronoun hell. Her, she, her, she, her, she is running out of the room screaming while the others watch in shock.
(Anyway, the latest edit of chapter one is over there in the sidebar…another rewrite down, a hundred more to go.)
