" Details, Details. It's was ALWAYS about the damned details." He thought to himself as he went over the short story one more time. Yes, he knew that spelling punctuation, and grammar were important. But this was getting ridiculous. He lost track of how many times he'd rewritten at least part of his story. It seemed like he'd rewrote the who damned thing at least twice. Picking up the original printout of his story, reading it over again, then the latest version. He hated to admit it, but the newest copy was much better. He had to admit all the rewriting had improved the story. It was much shorter tighter and seemed to flow much better. As much as he hated doing it, editing was a necessary evil, He normally didn't mind going back and fixing spelling and grammar errors, and the the like. But this time had been different. His editor had him got back and practically rewrite the whole story from start to finish. Dropping a couple of sections he thought were important, however after redoing and rewording a couple of sections before and after the dropped sections he'd had made the whole thing flow better. Thought the process he'd learned not to Quibble with is editor, and listen to him.
Editing had made a OK story with promise and almost no future a great story that he quickly sold and and helped him see the value of a good editor, and the whole editing process itself.
"Yes the devil is in the details" . He thought to himself.
