Words I Was Meant to Hear
Understand why you are using something and think about the symbolism it holds in everyday life.
Use words in such a way that it “pulls the reader into your mindset”
Number 1 rule when editing – “cross out boring”
“Know what you want out of being published”
When publishing with a small press ask: What their editing policy is. Ask to see their books. Ask for author references. Ask what their cover policy is.
Take the time to understand how you want your writer platform to work for you. The sweet spot comes from understanding your story or message, your strengths and interests and what interests your readers.
