Happy July to all writers! Join us at Alex Cavanaugh's blog for the monthly support group.
My favorite season is summer, especially swimming outside. Swimming a couple of miles is much more fun in the sunshine.
Americans, what are you doing July 4th? Attending a cookout like me? I'll attempt these patriotic red velvet brownies (*points right*)
Check out the recipe HERE.
My editor and I are thick into edits for my fifth novel, Blocked.
We came up with a blurb (that was tough!) and posted it on Goodreads.
And now I'm getting quotes from cover designers. What do you think is a reasonable cost for a cover artist? I'll likely pony up and pay a bit more than I'd planned in order to get the designer I want.
One thing I've noticed in editing is my typical writer mistakes. (Thank God for editors!) In the past, I've had shifty POV, but I think I've cleared that up. But I continue to struggle with the timeline. My editor has to ask "When is this happening?" or "Is this before or after Beergate?" I wrote out a timeline, chapter by chapter, so hopefully that will help.
A new problem with this manuscript seems to be my use of commas. Apparently, I use, commas, too much, at times. And at other times I don't use commas enough. ;-)
What writer mistakes haunt you?
