So much for self-editing

I recently posted my thoughts on editing our own writing. So proud of myself. Until I was reading it (after it was published, of course) and discovered a glaring mistake.

If you received that post in an email, I’m sure you spotted the error. I’ve since corrected it, so no one knows about this except us.

Another lesson: take the time to read it again, and again.

I've been a freelance writer for 40 years; published several hundred magazine articles in subjects from biotechnology to travel, inspirational to nutsy, and even written a couple of novels. I also taught a number of classes on "marketing your writing" at a local university, with several of my students moving on to successful writing careers a lot quicker than I did, and I was thrilled to have been a part of their journey. I always enjoy passing on to new writers what I have learned over the years, and I hope this blog will continue to do that.. The writing assignments I most enjoyed were for travel industry publications. I wrote for the National Tour Association, The Group Travel Leader and Bank Travel Management, which is now called The Elite Traveler. Now I concentrate on fiction and essays. I published one romance novel, Caribbean Charade, under the pen name of Louise Perry and there are still copies of it floating around out there. My latest novel, A Spirit in the Heart, by Ell Wheeler, is available as an ebook on Amazon.com.
