I've no problem making up stories, but there is more to the craft of writing. My strength might not be with the fundamentals, good old fashioned spelling, punctuation, or grammar. So, the day comes when a writer has to set aside their massive ego and let a professional editor do their job.
Looks are often deceiving. Hard-nosed editors come in small packages. I know he doesn't look that tough, but he cut my first hundred pages without batting an eye lash.
Looking back on it now, I have to admit, the book did benefit from a professional's touch.
With writing, the more perspectives the better. If you've read Sighing Woman Tea, or do so in the future, I would value your feedback. But I won't lie, I really do like Advil a lot more than the generic stuff. I'm sure it's because of the candy coating.
