ProofReading

I'm at the computer and the email is done. It's 6:47 am and time to start proofreading (again). Yesterday, I got up to page 37, with 5 mistakes found so far. At this rate, there will be another 15 or so mistakes by the time I get to page 200! It's slow, tedious work, and even more difficult because I've read and reread the manuscript so many times I might stare a typo in the face and not recognize it! But I would like it to be perfect! So back to proofreading!

I've also enlisted a colleague to take a look through the manuscript, taking Tom Sawyer's approach to painting the picket fence! Maybe he can find a few mistakes that I'll miss. We'll see.
