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.

Congratulations on finishing the edit for your book, Jennie. You are an amazing woman. And this is a cool blog. I love the pictures.

By the way, I added this link to my blog.

Good for you. I'm doing some editing now myself. Not my favorite part, but I will be glad when it's all done.
