Manuscript

It’s all very well getting your manuscript accepted. Publishers know very well that authors are perfectionist creatures. They know that we’re perfectly capable of agonizing for days over a misplaced colon. That’s why they give you an upload date. A date when you have to decide that your book is finished. No more changes, no more afterthoughts. Off it goes for copyediting and *pagination* (that’s why you can’t keep adding things: it changes the layout of the book). Anyway, by the end you’ll just be going around in spirals. So I BEAT MY UPLOAD DATE and got it in early! Whoo hooo!
