Multiple awards *I blush*... thank you thank you...

One of my pitfalls is starting every conversation with the pause, well... It drives me crazy every time I see it and every time I can't think of a more adequate word replacement. I do love adverbs as they are useful for pacing but yes you're right they are the weeds in the garden that is your story, use one or two and suddenly your book is overrun with them. Happens every time.

I like to get folks thinking. I hope. I love to study the books and stories I read. Style and substance go hand in hand...

Umm... why is your title page the last page of your book?

For this format I just tossed it on the back. Boring.

I wish we could highlight text that speaks to us so we can comment on it directly but your last paragraph in Being Ready speaks volumes about why I chose and obviously you chose to be a writer. Thanks for sharing.

You have such an effortless way of telling us your thoughts. I wish my rambling ways could be so compelling.

I am so glad you've decided to share your thoughts, your perspective, and your stories here on litnet. I know all too well the struggle that you speak of, the days I can not write are days where a little black cloud just follows me around until the sun can shine again. Writing for me is like breathing, I have to do it or I'll die.

Brad Emshwiller, I learned the hard way. haha

I edit by chapter. That's why I post so slow. What I write has to be perfect for my standards. Otherwise I won't post it. You're doing a great job. ❤️

That’s the way, Rosa. Big nod for being able to write that way. I need the entire piece or to break it up into chunks for editing. My fiction often needs tremendous rewrites. Thank you for the continued interest.

I love the bit about influencing someone positively, you've definitely done that for me already. I'm sure it takes so much vulnerability to put your work out there, and even though I eat that shit up I know were all our own worst critics. Thank you

Appreciated, as always.

I got to say; this was an interesting read. Ok, the first chapter needed some work on punctuation, but the rest were surprisingly deep and thought-provoking... at least, I thought so anyway. My favorite one is the second chapter, all about the writing process, cause it's true. This is a delightful read, I added to my library for future updates~

Hey, if you want, I can follow you as you said in your comment if you'll please follow me back. Cheers~

Brad Emshwiller, Thanks

I'm not a good writer but I'm trying my best to improve. I have these same thoughts. Added this to my library and I'm waiting to read more about these inner reflections.
