Editing is Tedious

Okay, this is just another way for saying slow but the word is fitting. Tedious.

I've spent a good part of today working off and on editing and only managed to get almost half a chapter done. I'm still on chapter 1.  I think this blog needs fun images. Almost wish I had a blog on tumblr... almost. lol

But I'm liking the progress. Since I did those months of highlighting in order to know what to edit, I'm able to see the progress in an easy way. The parts that need editing can be overwhelming at times though, with all the different colors. But it's satisfying to go from colorful section to a section without highlights. A very visible form of progress and I'm liking that. I took a couple of screen shots to show you all what I mean.

Here is the tedious feeling, full of colors example:

And now an edited section:

See? Progress! But this is taking a really long time. Going to take at least two months per novel I'm guessing. We'll see how I feel after it's done. But I have work to do. Just fixing things one small problem at a time. Hope to have a beta approachable product by the end.
