Hey, this is pretty cool....

Review of Firsts. It's a top-pick!

In other news...I'm editing something for a publisher, and a lot of the words I need to eliminate seem pretty...oh, what's the word...basic. I know the changes are needed and whatnot, and I can definitely see how these certain words overused, but I have to many authors redefine their writing style upon entering the publishing world?

I've been editing straight for three weeks now. I hope I remember how to write once this is over...

Yay on the review!!

I'm constantly changing my style depending on my editor and what they want. It's difficult sometimes, but a neccessary evil!

I feel you on those edits!

I actually got around 100 words written last night, but I think it could have been more had I not self-edited as I wrote. I know that's not the way you're supposed to do it, but my brain just can't switch off. :\

I'm telling myself I need to write as I would normally, then go back and edit after I've given the section or chapter time to cool off.
