Today I found an old site, Dragon Writing Prompts. It hasn’t been updated in about a year or so, but there are some really good things on that site to jar the muse. It made me have an idea for a new blog series for you. One of those muse-tweakers (my term for them) was “What do you do when your writer won’t write?” This set me off on a great idea for a blog series for you, dear readers. How about we cover those items that readers ask of writers. Like, WHY haven’t you come out with BOOK X?
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.
Okay, now that I have done my newsboys gig, let’s get to it. Life at the house of line edits… Lines, tigers, edits, oh my! I have not been posting much due to work/life/coronavirus stuff. Yes, we all have been being good little humans and quarantining ourselves. Not that I mind. Really. I have discovered that I am quite the homebody/loner. Didn’t know that about myself. But I am and so there, I’ve said it. But what’s the news you ask? Well, I’m glad you helped me de-digress. So, I have been deep into that dark abyss called LINE EDITS.
