Thoughts while line editing

What did I mean by that?
I'm going to have to rewrite this section. Needs tension.
Used that word three times in this paragraph. How about a synonym?
I still love this scene.
That character needs to sound more natural.
I will shrink this page of exposition down to a potent, useful nugget.
Ah, there's a typo.
Didn't I give that character a different first name earlier on?
Delete.
I'm going to finish sooner than I thought!
This is going to take longer than I thought.

  1. The last sentence strikes home with a loud bang. All the others are very familiar as well!

    1. So many things take longer than I thought they would. ;-)
