And boy, am I grateful.
Going through copy edits is nerve-wracking, because you really want everything to be perfect, and there is always the fear that you really screwed up and got something terribly wrong in the plot and you won't know how to fix it. I have to change the name of a town because if I use a real town, then I have to make everything in it right, and I'd rather fudge it and have fun with it. I had to do more research on everything from obstetrics to funeral parlors because the more real those facts are, the better.
So I'll be done by Wednesday, I think. Liberating! Freeing! I can work on my new novel! I can finish my script!
I can wait for page proofs.
