It’s me again, revisions

Once again, I grace the hallowed halls of your social media to rant about the perils of line edits and revisions. Sorry if this does NOT interest you. Keep scrolling in that case. I will be back with silliness on another post. For now, though, I am feeling very anxious. Not about Covid-19, no. I got over that in the second or third week of quarantine. No, I am feeling a nausea in my belly about revisions. This book already has 351 single-spaced pages, over 92k in word count. (when I make it double-spaced OY VEY!) it has 10,732 lines.

Blogs: All they need is love

Blogs: All they need is love

Have you ever seen blogs whose last post was published months ago or maybe even years? Well, let me just say, I have, just recently, and it’s kind of sad.

Call it my reflection about my website/blog for the

If you do not care for statistics and charts and that sort of junk, you have permission to skip this blog post. So, here we are.

Blogging: Where’dya go?

There have been very few posts on this blog lately (and even NOT lately) that were sort of geared for readers. I know, I know, I talk an awful lot about writing, publishing, marketing, and so on in a vein that would appeal to a writer. Well, indeed, I do have to quit that. Because in truth, I am not blogging for other writers. I really ain’t. No. Really. So starting today, lovely reader, I am going to be blogging for you and talking to you and … yes, please do comment. I just came back here to the old
