Thanksgiving Blog Hop … day three

With the craziness of NaNoWriMo this month and other writing stuff I’ve got to do, I’m taking a small break. For the days leading up to Thanksgiving, I’m going to post small snippets or pictures of things that I’m thankful for. I’ll post some small editing advices of things I’ve learned over the years. I may even announce a very exciting event coming up. Who am I kidding? I WILL announce it by the end of this week!

What is it, you ask? Agented/Published authors or industry interns are teaming up with aspiring writers to read entire manuscripts and help shine up their teammate’s pitches to present to agents in January. So get your manuscripts ready. More details this week.

My third thankful thought…

I’m thankful for my best friend, Joannine. We’ve been best friends since we were in middle school. She always has my back and we’ve been through so many of life’s messes together. Of course, I was the one that always got us into trouble, but she was eager to follow along.

This is us at a toga party we went to back in high school. I’m the one in the middle (before I went blond) and I’m looking at Joannine. Probably not wanting to look at the boy in the diaper. Ha!
 

Editing tip: Don’t overload your reader with back story at the start of your book. Sprinkle that stuff in through out your story. Keep your reader engaged in action and let us get to know your characters as we take the journey with them.
