After several interesting conversations on Facebook, I’m extending my editing checklist…actually, I’m going to make it into a page, too. I think it needs it. Thank you to everyone who commented!
So, some comments:
Which is a good point. I had a convo with @O_T_Curtis that made me think, too; when do those clichés become too much?
I also had some very interesting comments around jobs and farming (aka. sheep are buggers and don’t follow along nicely), and the importance of researching anything you want your main character to be doing.
