Editing and editing and editing

Life seems to have shrunk to the next comma, the next misspelling, the para indent, the page break. Changing capitals, removing unnecessary colons, correcting the tenses seems the most important thing in the world right now.

Some people put a capital after inverted commas and some people don’t. Now it all matters. Lines crawl by, consuming hours and days.

Will I ever finish, I wonder?

This is not the part I enjoy – all the more reason to make sure it is done right.
