It’s a beautiful day so I’m going to get my son out early and head to the beach :)
So just a quick post today and I wanted to spend this time to thank the little thing I would seriously panic without–
I was not the kid getting in line for spelling bees or the kid who was especially interested in grammar rules. When teachers put sentences up on the board I began doodling in my notebooks. Later, I always needed someone to look over my term papers and one teacher once told me that I could be a terrific writer one day but would need a fantastic editor :)
After I finished the third book in the series (yes, I wrote like crazy for a whole year) I realized if I really wanted this out I needed to finally pay attention to all the rules. I bought books and searched writing blogs. I went through each draft with each specific grammar rule. I just kept searching and deleting and restructuring.
I was really absorbing a lot of this stuff for the first time and could tell my future writing began to improve. But the one thing I still need is that blessed, little ABC icon. I feel so secure having it there, knowing that it will catch most of the mistakes I make. It allows me the confidence to put myself out here on this blog.
Nothing like a few spelling errors when your trying to sell yourself as an author.
Alright, off to the beach! Happy Friday everyone!
