“The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who’ll get me a book I ain’t read.“
My copy of Kelli Stanley’s new release, City of Dragons, the one I won at reviewingtheevidence.com, arrived today. And I received an e-mail that Stephen King’s Under the Dome had shipped from barnesandnoble.com. But some bad news: the copy of Hester, which I had pre-ordered, has been delayed.
I’m currently reading Heart of the Hunter by that South African thriller writer I’ve been telling you about, Deon Meyer. This is good multiple point of view writing with great plots, interesting characters, and a fascinating setting.
“If you re-read your work, you can find on re-reading a great deal of repetition can be avoided by re-reading and editing.”
Then there’s my own resting manuscript. I’ll begin re-reading, revising and self-editing next week, so I’ll post updates about the process — what I do and how I do it. Don’t worry. I’m not going to drag you kicking and screaming through every horrid detail. I’m not that cruel.
I’ll be back tomorrow, but I must hurry off to fix something to eat and get ready for an evening of Olympics and American Idol. I think our lovely young lady from Northern Colorado (Fort Collins) made the top 24. See you tomorrow.
