Hello Online Diary!
I’ve been busy writing Devotion. I tried to free-write this week. That’s when you write whatever comes to mind. I don’t usually use that technique because it leaves me hours of listening and correcting the draft. But I did it anyway, so I have 29268 with one review and another 3k still in free write. Nothing in this draft is set in stone. I’ve learned over the years that you must listen to your writing and care about every word. I used to get beta readers to read through my rough drafts, which was a disaster. So I’ve grown and have accepted that I need to slow down and work on each chapter. Even if I had everything ready, I’d still wait for the group of editors I’m working with now. They are amazing and very booked. They worked on the previous books, so I don’t have to spend more money and time for someone to catch up. They know romance writing extremely well, and they also know my strengths and weaknesses. Better still, they push me to write better. That’s really what you want to find as a writer. Honest, caring editors won’t tell you everything is fine because it is not, LOL. I love them so much, and I’m so grateful every day.
I have such wonderful people in my life now. I feel so blessed every day. All your wonderful posts and message have really made me feel so good. I’m so happy you are reading my writing. Thank you so much!!
