There’s More: a new series

I'm embarking on a new adventure. God willing, I'll never be the same. And you're invited.  What is it? Well, the good news is this adventure doesn't involve death-defying acts or a big budget.

The Writer as an Editor

If you're like me, 75% of time spent on a manuscript will be refining, be it through rewrites, edits, proofreading, or tweaking after feedback. Today at When Readers Write, I'm blogging about The Writer as an Editor. In my post, I share … Continue reading The Writer as an Editor
