I assume, if you’ve found me here, that you’ve already visited Beat to a Pulp online, where I hold down the Editor at Large position. Or you’ve read a little about me at my web site, which promotes my editing business outside of BTAP.
This new blog is my way of staying in touch, and putting down all the hard-won information rattling around in my brain on writers and writing. I can honestly say that editing is a thrill for me—each story has a touch of beauty or a stirring moment, even if it’s not ready for publication—yet. Every story that someone sat down and put their best effort into, has merit. Maybe it’s still a diamond in the rough, but there’s a real diamond in there waiting to shine.
Comments and questions are encouraged. I may not be able to answer all, but some definitely. I can use all the topic inspiration you have to offer.
Apply yourself. Get all the education you can, but then, by God, do something. Don’t just stand there, make it happen.
