As I waited for my train to take me to my first writer’s chapter meeting for our local RNA group, I received the most exciting email… from my editor. (Oh my god, you can’t say that – they’ll think you’ve got something published 🙄). Actually I think I can use that term, because I have paid a fee to a professional, had a decent-sized short story edited properly before I go on to send it out. I will now see if I can get anyone to sniff it, taste it and maybe even bite and run with it. So, the brilliant Emma Mitchell I shall now refer to as my editor thank you very much 💃🏼
You can see all of Emma’s editorial services here at Creating Perfection. Now while I’m not claiming her list of wonderful suggested changes (most of which I humbly admit I have implemented) will make my story ‘perfection‘ I would certainly rather my name be associated with a grammatically correct piece of writing with all the spellings and tenses having been double-checked by her eagle eyes.
What a patient and caring manner Emma has too, while dealing with my technological inadequacies, which left me a little puzzled with the Word document until she came to my rescue 🙈!
I cannot wait to finish implementing the changes, complete the process and send the story out into the big wide world! I don’t even mind if it doesn’t get anywhere – I’ve learnt so much from this process and am excited about the next larger shared project with Creating Perfection. <a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/puzzled/”>Puzzled</a>
