Welcome Leisl Kaberry

Kathryn Treat, a dear friend and fellow Rave Reviews Book Club member, featured this guest post by Leisl Kaberry on her book blog. Leisl’s tips for writers are so good I had to pass them on. Seasoned writers as well as novice writers can profit from these tips.

The Dreaded Edit – A Terrible Chore or The Sculpting of a Masterpiece?

So you’ve finished the first draft of your manuscript and it’s time for editing to begin… do you run and hide under your covers hoping the elves will visit during the night and fix the errors? Do you send it on to someone else and let them deal with it? Or do you stare it in the face and refuse to let it beat you?

    Jennie, I love your blog posts and read them regularly. I’m in Europe for a month and am keeping a blog of the trip. I thought you might find it interesting. Here’s the link https://hikebikewritedelightsummer2014.wordpress.com The last 10 days have been amazing, complete with a transit strike in France that left us without transportation. It’s been pretty exciting. I think you’d especially like the cave drawings taken when my friend and I were in the Dordogne. I think of you fondly, Erica

      Erica: I can’t wait to read your blog. I’ve been wondering about your writing sojourn. Glad to hear it has been exciting, even though you are living the French experience. Strikes have been a well-used right of workers in France, guaranteed in the French constitution. Amuse-toi bien. Amicalement, votre amie.

      You’re welcome, Leisl. Great post. All writers need to edit and revise. I favor the edit as you go approach, which to me is a way of thinking while writing. It is effective for establishing logical sequence, which is crucial in both fiction and non-fiction writing. I agree wholeheartedly that every writer’s manuscript needs outside review as well. Best of luck, Jennie
