FINISHED THE EDIT
It's late and I'm tired, but I just had to tell someone. I finished the edit on Ruby. Of course there's still some back-and-forth stuff between my editor and me before it's a book, but when he completes the main edit, then I finish going through it in detail, we've passed a major mile stone. This is where we both get really nit-picky about what goes, what stays, and what's added. This is where I learn that things that make perfect sense to me, sound kind of goofy to him. This is where I have to back up my research if it sounds a little out of whack to him. It's also where we laugh over our different perspectives because he's a man and I'm a woman and we're of different generations. All in all, it leaves me feeling like we've got the bases covered.
