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.

Sargon does that to me. It's . . . pain like a thousand papercuts.
