I've had some new bloggers stop by this week to post. What a blessing it always is to meet new writers or others who just happened to connect with something I've written. The whole blogging concept still amazes me some days. Relationships are made from writing some words in a box like I am now.
Does that make you think even more how powerful our words can be? It does me.
I think that's why I've been dragging this week with my revisions on my WIP. In the past, I wrote a book and sent it off after only a quick look through. Spelling, punctuation, etc. and I figured it was good enough. Wonder why I've gotten a few rejections?
Now I'm seeing there is a while skeleton to be numbered and counted underneath that body of what I call a book.
I've had some success with short stories. With those, I'd spend days editing the 750 words or so until every word and line did what it should. What made me think I wouldn't have to do that with a book?
When it's done, I hope my story will move someone as they read it. Like I want with everything I write. And that will take effort.
How about you? Are your words making the impact you hope they will?
