BOM: The Editing
I think it's fair to say that most of the editing occurred when Lori and I got together after the "merge" of our stories. We'd sit at the computer together--either at her house or mine--and go through the book with an eye out for inconsistencies, etc. Often we'd think of funny things--a direct example of synergy--and the completed project was much funnier than what we'd written on our own.
Ami McConnell, our editor at Nelson, used to try to guess which of us had written which story. :-)
Most of the time the editing went quite smoothly--no major disagreements that I recall. A painless experience.
Tomorrow: results and reader reaction
