Worth A Look
I found this very informative post
on the shapes, scopes, forms and names of various sorts of edits. Thought some of you might be interested.
If you are new to writing and would like a great, easy to understand resource on the craft, Moody should definitely be one of your first stops.
That’s it from me for today. Please feel free to bring more tidbits to my attention. I might not be able to update today’s post (as I might be on the road), but send them anyway. If I can’t get them in now, I’ll try for next week.
Have a wonderful day!
