Finishing Manuscript

I'm getting close to finishing the manuscript for my sixth Paul Jacobson Geezer-lit Mystery. I'm in the editing process now. For me I go through numerous edit passes. First, I reread and check the story flow and consistency. Then I go through to make sure the grammar works. Next, I go through numerous passes to eliminate pet words and filler words. When this is all completed, I reread again to make sure it still makes sense with any word changes. And the final pass that I’m on now, I read it out loud.

Yay, Mike! Another great book I'll be able to add to my TBR List.
