For several weeks now, I have been combing through some of my older manuscripts. You know the ones that get put on the back burner for whatever reason. Let me first say that I don't know everything there is to know about writing.
Not even close.
With that out in the open, I will say, WOW! I have learned so much since 2008, when I first stuck my toe in the sometimes FREEZING water of the writing world. I think, just for today-let's say just for the next half an hour or so-I'm going to kick up my feet, drink some delicious water (since I have to snub my nose at my usual sweet tea for the next nine months and pretend water is delicious...again...totally worth it by the way), and bask in the knowledge I've learned thus far.
Do you ever brave the pages of an old manuscript? What are some crazy writing rules that you now have burned into your brain?
Okay. Time's up. Back to my editing grind, research, and shameless self-promotion.
