And the process begins again...

Well...Tracy Ruckman sent me back her edit, and made a lot of suggestions, including books to read on Characterizations, and "Show, Don't Tell." In fact there is more I need to read, and truth be told, reading non-fiction about what to do and how to do it is a bit like taking a class: interesting, but not quite as exciting as reading or writing.

But, as I've been applying the edits, I've seen my style change, and a new story is emerging from the foundation of the original, and that's exciting! In fact, I am as excited as when I was first writing the story.

Most seasoned writers still encounter editors who constantly harp on them to improve, improve, improve. And if they still get those kinds of input to their writing, then I am among the best, whose craft keeps getting better and better.

Write On!
