okay, it took me 3 hours, but the manuscript is now free of spelling mistakes! actually, i expected it to take longer, really, but my forearms and wrists don’t think it was short enough.
of course, there’s all sorts of wrong words still in there (‘then’ instead of ‘than’, ‘finding’ instead of ‘fending’, etc.), but they will have to wait until draft 2.0 and the genuine full revision.
now i have the four pages of notes to work in…
