So the learning curve, even when its a wheel that just ends up back where it started is a GOOD thing?

I've been going in circles all my life..... I MUST be a genius by now! LOL.

Interesting.....


Hope youre having a fantastic day my friend!

Take care.

Nienke sees Stephanie in the comment room. She runs off with tail between her legs to fetch her Alphie...

Great quote:
Put your pedal to the metal and fix the potholes later.

I can SO relate, Nienke.

thnx for the link, didn't know about the comment tool so i'll be using it in the future.
i tend to write the main novel first and then do the edit later, after all that is why they're called re-writes :)
hope it works out for you.
PS: check out my new blog :)

Love this blog. ALways helpful to the struggling writer.
Id like to find a nonfiction writers blog. Or a reporter/journalists blog.
Anyone have any suggestions?

Great question! I have that same problem. The answer helped me out too :-)

Cool answer! I second the advice - take what you learn and apply it from that point forward. Even with the GMC - do some work on it and then include it with what you write from now on. You can go back and revise the first part once you're done. Took me a while to do that too.

This was great! And read the post about commenting blocks in Word. Was wondering how to do that!
