I seem to learn a new lesson everyday.
Today I learned that Wordpress isn't very user friendly. (In fact, Norton blocked me from one of their pages saying it was "malicious.") It could just be me, of course. I am new to the world of blogging, so maybe I just need to spend more time with the site.
Yesterday I learned something about myself and my writing. So many tips I've seen essentially say: "Just write! Don't worry about editing until the original draft is finished. Then go back and start making changes." My problem is that I can't seem to do that. I edit as I go. I check my facts in my backstory to make sure there are no inconsistencies. (I can't stand inconsistencies.) As I'm checking, I'm fixing typos and verb tense and anything else I come across.
My instructor for the writing class I'm taking said that agents/publishers would be happy to get such clean copy, but it slows my writing extensively. I need to learn how to finish the project first and then go back and fix everything.
Another thing I've found: I love reading the blogs I have listed on my side bar. If you're interested in the publishing industry, these blogs are great reads. Give them a peek.
