This is so very random, but I just have to say something about it while it’s on my mind.
Apparently, when editing, some pages require more attention than others. Case in point:
Some pages look like this. The corrections are in purple, this time. I don’t like to use red. Reminds me too much of high school. I apologize for the quality of the pictures. The lighting in the library right now is… interesting. I suppose they don’t think people will be taking a lot of pictures of what they’re working on.
Anyway. This is one of the pages of Witch Queen that I just got finished rereading, and this is what came of it. Strike outs everywhere and ten million things rewritten and changed.
And yes, when there’s this much and more, it becomes a bit of a challenge to figure out what correction I wanted to go where.
So that was page… 27. Page 27. Then here’s page 28: There’s hardly anything there. A few words, and even then, I think I really just kind of swapped words out. I don’t really think I added anything new to it at all. These pages are literally back to back, no pages between them.
I question myself a lot, but apparently some pages just seem to come out better than others.
Does anyone else have this happen to them. Sections that sound really, really good, and then, like the very next section, you read it and wonder if you forgot the most basic rules of your native language?
Or is this just another weird, nitpicky thing that I do to myself because I’m apparently some type of masochist?
