who can you call?






Who can you call?

Writing is a solitary job. Nobody else can put words to paper in your voice, in your style. But a good critique partner can swing you in the right direction and point out when you, perhaps, are straying off tangent.

Having a fresh pair of eyes ready to read for content as well as grammar and spelling is a gift. In addition to a weekly critique group, I am lucky to have three people I trust, in my corner, raring to go as soon as I say “Deadline!” J

Only one of the three is a writer, the other two are voracious readers and can tag a contrived plot from twenty pages. They know character arc, they know when something is dragging and boring, and they know when I spend ten paragraphs too many talking about fish in Atlanta.

I know how much time this takes away from their own day, and their feedback is critical. I thank them from the bottom of my heart!!!

I will be writing four more books this year, after having just finished Crimson Gold – a historical romantic adventure that my agent has in his Kindle/iPad as we chat.  What keeps me motivated?  Knowing that there are readers out there who like my stuff, and who occasionally drop me a line. I’m easy – what can I say?


Happy 2012!


ps - guess i went off topic too..woops!!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
this matter to be actually something which I think
I would never understand. It seems too complex and
very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post,
I will try to get the hang of it! https://www.feedbooks.com/user/7360934/profile

Hey! I know this is sort of off-topic but I
needed to ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a lot of
work? I am brand new to blogging however I do write in my diary on a daily basis.
I'd like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and views online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
Appreciate it! https://www.furaffinity.net/user/stephen534/
