I spent most of yesterday editing and then re-editing my already edited work. when I went to bed and closed my eyes, I saw text. It was random sentences that made no sense full of typos, missing commas, full stops and speech marks.
What a weird experience. That's never happened before, still I'm glad I did re-edit the story as I can't believe that I still found the odd typo and missing grammar mark. That made me so mad you know?
Anyway, I just had to get that off my chest. The story is called Shades of Green and is the first of my novels that I'm sorta confident enough to release.
It's a strange feeling going back and re-reading one of my longer stories and after concentrating of writing short, sharp shockers for the past few months.

250 folk downloaded my story 'Lumps' from Smashwords yesterday and I haven't a clue why. Apart from the initial spike when I launched the book, the downloads have been averaging at 10 to 20 per day.
