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?


First recorded in 1350–1400; Middle English, from Old French, from Latin dēfīnītīvus, equivalent to dēfīnīt(us) (see definite) + -īvus adjective suffix (see -ive)
Do you love words? Do you like to know where they come from? And do you like grammar? And want to know if I should have ended that sentence with 'from' or not? And do you want to know if it is grammatically correct to start a sentence with 'and" -- or is it verboten?
Well, then you have come to the right place -- because I have found a 'one stop' shopping place for all you writers and would-be writers (if you aren't afraid to start). Allison K Williams has the answers for you! All in one beautifully written (and edited) book.

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.
