If you let it, a good red pen can be a magic wand.
Despite the drudgery of line editing a manuscript…all 290 or so pages…I’m learning to love my favorite tool. Yep. My trusty “wand”…my red pen.
The best writing advice ever? Give your work time to marinate. Even the most well-chosen words need separation from their creators…in my case a good two-month hiatus. But now? I’m cranking along and it feels good.
To anyone in the same editing boat, I’m rowing with you — promise – with plenty of red pens to share!
