I’m trying to (re- re- re- re- re-)scrub my book before sending it to a publisher. I’m finding many small details that I feel need fixing. Some scenes need rewriting, some trashing.
I’m actually using different colored game pieces to keep track of combatants in a large fight scene as I check the “choreography.”
Perhaps this last “polish” of the novel will make a difference and I’ll get an acceptance this time.
