I just finished looking over the copyedits for SOMEONE LIKE YOU. As I’d heard, there weren’t many major edits, just tons of nit-picking by the copyeditor, who was very thorough. Which is a good thing, but also frustrating. I’m very picky when it comes to changing dialogue, and our copyeditor kept changing sentence structure within dialogue, making our characters sound like English professors. I hate that. People don’t always speak grammatically correct. Hell, a lot of us don’t even write that way.
Now I feel like I accomplished something today. And I didn’t even have to leave the house.
