The Red... It Haunts Me

Not a lot of you know this but my Mom edits 90% of my fiction work before it sees professional eyes outside mine. Today, she returned the FFF manuscript. I opened it up with true anticipation. She had already made some good comments about it. Then, I got to the first page.

It looked like she had slaughtered something on it. The red corrections and comments covered the page.

My heart sank for a moment. Then, I sighed and got to work.

It's all for the best but the red edit marks made by my mom's virtual pen haunt my writing nightmares from time to time.
