Final, jiggling with the completed manuscript of Cold Light before it goes to the typesetters. I pity the person who needs to make this scribbled, Tipp-exed, dog-eared lump of well loved paper into a book.
Things I have learned during these edits:
You can’t have someone watching the adverts while The Antique Roadshow is on, because AR was a BBC programme and there weren’t any adverts.
The prescription charge in 1997 did not apply to contraceptives prescribed by a doctor, did apply to the morning after pill unless you got it from a doctor in an A and E department or you were under the age when prescription charges would usually apply.
My handwriting is attrocious, and I drip tea on everything.
Lemsips really do take care of anxiety.
