There are three words that every writer dreads to hear: I HATE IT!
Unless (and this is a BIG unless) those three words come from your reading partner before you publish.
You are all brilliant people so I’m sure you have figured out what has inspired me to blog about this today. Oh yeah. I got that email last night. My beautiful, wonderful, amazingly talented author friend, Danielle Bannister, bombed on one of my sequel’s chapters. Neeeeeerrrrrr KABOOM!
I considered being ticked off for about 3.2 seconds before I realized she was right. Darn it, I hate it when that happens!
Now of course, as a writer, it’s hard to think of anything that we write as being crap. Word vomit as some people lovingly refer to it as. But this chapter….eh. Yeah, that’s what it was.
It was me trying to force myself into a POV that just wasn’t working. *Sigh* Back to the drawing board.
Thanks for being so tough on me, Danielle! You always force me to take that extra step.

sorry….it was just a chapter that wasn’t doing you any good. I know, payback will be harsh. I know. And I’m scared.
Haha. You betcha. When do you want me to start editing again? 🙂
