Day 2 Journal

A good day. After my usual download of sales data, coffee and Facebook time, I worked on the revisions per my beta readers and finished them. I then wrote thank you notes to each of the three who had sent me detailed feedback.

I then took a break for lunch, laundry, and watching another episode of Anne with an E.

I also investigate proofreaders. On prior books, I didn't have the funds to hire any kind of an editor, so did it myelf with the help of AutoCrit or Pro Writing Aid. I think I'd like to see what kinds of things a professional proofreader would find, so will most likely contact a few and request sample edits, quotes, and whether or not they can do this in a short time. Many good editors are booked months in advance. I'd love to be able to do that, but I'm never sure when a book will be done until it's done.

Another loss by the Red Sox (:::sigh:::) and a nap.

Heading into the weekend, I'm not sure exactly what I'll do. I need a brief break before reading through the book one more time.
