My Dad has written a novel. He has an editor, who required massive rewrites of him - he made the rewrites, paid three digits to a line editor for doing her job. Then asked me to do the text editing. This is the hardest reading I have ever done! I get into the damn story then relize I read a couple of paragraphs minlessly, and I have to go back and reread them, looking for commas. It gives me a head ache. I did one chapter the first day. I have to go do some more now.
