My manuscript is bleeding from all the red ink I've used on this revision. I intentionally waited until I was down to the dreaded punctuation review to use any red ink on my MS. Now that I'm going back to front, line-by-line, with four different punctuation referrences spread out around me, my manuscript has become quite gory. And I'm not talking about the story.
I just don't know how it's possible for one well educated woman to be so obtuse about punctuation. I mean seriously. I just still don't really get it. Don't get me wrong, going line by line, I've finally figured out how to spot some things, but others I have to labor over.
That makes me wonder if anyone, other than editors really knows this stuff. How did I get a 3.87 in my MBA writing like this? It's crazy! But I am determined. It's going to take all week to get it done, but I'm going through every line to make sure that they have the best punctuation I can provide. Whether it will be right or not, who knows?
