Jim is my Technical Editor/Critiquer. He opens the .rtf with the first 177 pages and a minute later says “Page 2”. At this point, if the laptop wasn’t right there, I’d be completing a ~headdesk~. It was minor. So was the thing on Page 3 and Page 20. At this point he remarks that something chapters further on has never set well and we’re off to check that out.
Sure enough, there’s a problem. Again, nothing big but it needed attention and now it’s fixed. How he sees these things is beyond me because I’ve read it a thousand times and never spotted the errors.
He just smiles when I swear under my breathe. I’m Italian and Irish, it’s stress relief for me.
