Good Mornin', Everybuddy,
Since I am editing - slowly, but still - I thought I'd drop some edit notes down for you.
This is for Early Grave...

^ make stronger
>> Eva Brown?? Seriously? (Yes, played with it on purpose later.

That's most of the first page of notes - with super spoilery ones left out . I realize it probably looks weird and isn't very understandable, but you get the gist of what my edit notes to myself look like. Early on, I don't make a whole lot of notes about grammar. I'm hitting the high spots on the first run through. Grammar will come later after I tackle the big stuff - since I will probably insert even more typos and mistakes during the big edits.
