oh hell.  

Aghglghlghg. I didn’t have comments turned on, I guess, in the Open Office document, and so I have only just now, after two passes through the NO DOMINION manuscript & working from the revision letter & believing I was finished with revisions, discovered the 79 comments left in-manuscript by my editor.

I am not, it seems, done with revisions after all. Alghgghl.

Although this certainly explains the otherwise-bewildering lack of commentary in the manuscript, since Matrice usually has loads of good thoughts and things to point out…

Guess I won’t be doing the printout for copy edits tonight after all. o.O

In the 1970s, a writer told me that he had written a sex novel and turned it in. And then found out the editor had forgotten to mention that it was supposed to be a gay sex novel. He went through changing the female characters to men, etc.

Reading the book after it was published, he saw that he hadn't changed all the anatomical details.
