Edit, Edit, Edit

Being around other members of MCRW who talk about the endless nights of editing… I want those nights!

Every road leads somewhere...

Every road leads somewhere…

I long to get that phone call, telling me that a publisher finds my work worthy of publication. I want to hear the words, “We love it!  Now…here’s what you need to do to fix it.”

In the meantime, while I’m waiting for that phone call, I’m doing my own line-by-line edits. With everything I’ve learned, I’m taking my books a step further. Every step leads me closer to the bookshelf at your favorite bookstore, or that “e-universe” where you can download it into your e-reader.

Thank you for sharing the journey with me, and be sure to check out my “Books” page and read my prologue for “Marked.”


MCRW Retreat

Natchez Trace State Park, Lexington, Tennessee.  Wow!!  What a wonderful time I had learning from and sharing with other writers!!  The scenery was breath-taking and inspiring, and the workshops offered by some of our members who are published authors was priceless. I learned ways to improve my already existing manuscripts, and have already started a major edit on “Marked.” Though I know my existing manuscript is very good, I believe these simple changes will make it GREAT!  I’m very motivated!! And…I plan to do much better at keeping up my site!ImageImageImage
