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!

  1. Thanks for the mention, Misha!

    And loads of other great links. There's definitely no shortage of news at the moment. I'll do Wordmaster, I'll check out Maria's book, and have a think about something for the Cancer Anthology.
