Thread: What's Your Biggest Editing Challenge?

    Don't talk to me about commas. I've read books about them, and written articles based on it to try and help me internalise it, and still I look at them and think, "Is that right, or not? I don't know."

    PS, This is one of the joys of making videos of my short stories, no punctuation at all

    I often wonder how many commas it takes to write a novel. I use a professional grammar / punctuation service to edit my novels and spend half my time correcting commas. I do, however, find that an occasional extra comma makes a sentence more readable, and so, I leave it in. There is no shame in one too many commas.

    As far as real edits, I am terrible. The stories all get longer every time I edit them. It's as if my damned keyboard just keeps finding more story to add. I even threw out one keyboard and replaced it, only to find that the new one came with even more words in it. I am doomed.
