That’s what it is. I’m almost finished reading it and the mistakes and repetitions are horrible. If I didn’t know better I’d think I’d written this drunk. I’ll finish this phase of the process tomorrow. And next comes putting changes in the computer and rewriting where I’ve indicated.
It really does seem to be an awful mess. Except the dialogue. But even that has me baffled in some places like this:
“They only came up once when she told me they didn’t speak to her sister anymore.”
“She got any brothers or sisters?”
I mean really. The same page? The next sentence?
You see now what I’m up against?
