Mystery Meat and Edits

Are you ready for another round of editing? I have to be ready. I just received the follow-up round back from my soon to be authors. It’s the final push before their book is ready and I know exactly what they’re going through. You want your book published but you bite down on the end of the pen with crossed eyes from too may edit rounds.

You know you’re close to being finished when you want to scream into the silence because you don’t want to see your own words again. I said close because when you have that feeling, you still have one or two more rounds to go.

My week needs no theme because it’s rewind week. I’m in the editing stage of 3 books. I feel the excitement and exhaustion at the same time. You want to be done but done well. May we all hit the publishing button before the champagne pops for the New Year.

Outside of my writing world, I’m still looking for the best cut of meat. Apparently, there’s chuck roast, rump roast, brisket, flank, or skirt. The chuck roast was tasty but didn’t fall apart like I thought it would. I guess it’s time to try the next but on the list. Does anyone have suggestions? Maybe my foodie followers and chefs? Leave a comment if you have a tried preference.

Thoughts of slow cooked food, leads me to a writing prompt. What kind of scene can you create that touches all the senses for two characters. This could be fine dining or an at home disaster. Write for 5-10 minutes.

My posts are Monday through Friday.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
