This Writer’s Journey . . .

~~~

Writing is a journey, one I truly love and enjoy, but it can sometimes feel rather lonely. Hour after hour, alone, at the computer, pouring your heart and soul into each word. But I’ve learned I’m not alone, in fact, I’ve been blessed to be in contact with some amazing people, both writers and non-writers.

I want to share a bit of that with you. Each week I’ll be spotlighting someone I’ve come in contact with during my journey. Thanks for stepping along side of me—all of you—during this exciting time!

Sherry Soule

I met Sherry through Crescent Moon Press when she accepted the challenge of editing Wasteland!

Brave woman, I know. **grin**

I’ll be honest, when I first saw the edits, I got a bit scared. I don’t think you’ll find a first-time author who wasn’t scared when first and second rounds of edits came in.

They are intense.

But Sherry held my hand through it all. Such patience with my million questions. Readily available if I needed help.

And through it all, she was super encouraging.

I’ve learned tons from her. You should check out her blog. She’s one smart cookie! I’m super glad I got to work with her.

Even though our work on Wasteland has come to an end, I’m hoping to stay in touch with her for a long time to come!

    I’m glad you learned so much from Sherry. I know it was tough the first time through, but think of how much better you’ll be because of her.

    And, sorry for being a weirdo, but dang, she’s perdy! 😉 Hahaha!

    It’s downright frightening to get those first edits. I’m glad she was helpful to you during the process.

  4. SO glad you drew a great editor. The relationship there is very important. I’ve had 2 good ones and one that I never want to work with again. It can change the whole experience when you have one that is dogmatic and unreasonable.
