i'm still deep in the copyedit. need to have it done early in the day tomorrow so i'll have time to make a copy, then get it to UPS. i have a ticket to see belle and sebastian tonight. i thought about selling it, but i don't think i will. not as crazy about belle and sebastian as i was years ago, but i still want to see them. i hope they play seymour stein.
Seymour stein - Ive been lonely
I caught a glimpse of someone's face
It was mine and I'd been crying
Half a world away
Ticket for a plane
Record company man
I won't be coming to dinner
My thoughts are far away
I'm working on that day
North country girl
I think she's going to stay
Promises of fame, promises of fortune
LA to new york - san francisco back to boston
Has he ever seen dundee?
Won't he hire a limousine?
Seymour send her back to me
I heard dinner went well
You liked chris's jacket
He reminded you of johnny
Before he went electronic
Seymour stein - sorry I missed you
Have a nice flight home
It's a good day for flying
i've found two big things that were there from the very first draft.
three editors missed it.
one scene involves two guns. a little later there is only one gun. the other big problem involves DNA. not anything complex. I should have known better.
it's scary to get to this stage and find fairly big problems. i know there must be other things i've missed.
i wonder what a reader thinks about mistakes like this. if the book is really good, i would probably forgive the writer. if the book isn't that great, it would be another reason to check the writer off my list.
