Seven Drafts: Self-Edit Like a Pro from Blank Page to Book.
Wow, finally a book for writers that has it all. Definitive. Don't you just love that word?
ORIGIN OF DEFINITIVE
Every day -- really almost every day -- I get emails from people who are just starting their joy-filled journey into writing and want me to recommend a book for them to buy about writing. Of course, I can start at the top with Stephen King and Walter Mosley and Ernest Hemingway and so many more -- but for a timely, comprehensive and, I repeat, definitive guide to writing then I recommend Allison K! (Did you know K is a funny letter, like a pickle? at least that's what Allison says....just saying.)
Her website is appropriately called "I DO WORDS" and boy, oh, boy does she!
This is a very difficult post to write because I know she is going to read it -- and to tell you the truth -- she scares me! I mean she is known as The Unkind Editor, How many errors are in this little post of 396 words? Is she going to get out her red pencil? Well, who cares, as long as she doesn't charge me.
I'm a Yooper -- but I still like people who lived in Kalamazoo. Allison is an honorary Michigander since she proudly puts that on her web page. And that makes her special to me! And yes, I use 'and' too much and I love exclamation marks and hate colons. Oh, just PRE-ORDER Seven Drafts and, once you read it, then YOU too can edit me!
A quote from Allison K Williams....
Praise makes you feel good—
but specific, critical feedback helps you write better.
