"How can that be?" You ask, "Out of my brain came all these wonderful words on these pages."
When you have written, written, and rewritten pages for the umpteenth time, the words can start to blur. You see them, you think you see them. But are you seeing what is really on the page or what you remember is there from four rewrites ago? You know these words so intimately you can almost quote them in your sleep. The eye/brain fatigue that sets in allows mistakes and errors to reappear as if by magic. All those old bugaboos that you had ferreted out start to manifest again, as if returning from the dead; and sometimes they invite a new friend or two. The fatigue causes you to miss these errors, or a word inadvertently gets dropped during a retype, another miss.
You can ask friends and family to serve as readers, but the very same fatigue can affect them also; not to mention that their interest can flag rather quickly. Truth be told, they are not nearly as committed as you are to this project. At some critical point, just before publication, you need a completely fresh set of eyes. Many people have written quite knowledgeably about maintaining your focus and regaining "fresh eyes". Some of the ideas include taking vacations, frequently switching between projects, or even shelving a project for months at a time. These are all good ideas, but at some point you want to publish your work.
That is where we can help. Word Refiner is your last minute fresh eyes! Word Refiner does not want to see your first draft, nor your eleventh; but the twentieth or twenty-fifth. Just before publishing, contact us so we can serve you. Now you can receive the most benefit by having the fresh eyes of Word Refiner scour out what remains of the dross from your masterpiece.
