What Now?????

Editing is the pits. Three novels and a creative non fiction piece to the word 'end.' Personally edited three to five times. Still finding booboos. Yuk. A spell checker and grammar checker don't cover it. Eyes on the paper is all there is. Mine are crossed.

Because editing is so much of a bummer to me, I am trying to begin a new wip (work in progress), but nothing is working.  I have trashed four false starts. There is no hook coming to mind. Not a single plot shocker hits the paper. It's almost like I was afraid to have another manuscript to edit. Just the thought of which sends unwelcomed tingles up and down my spine like an electric shock. Never did like shocks.

Oh, well, I guess I'll just write. How about you?

Danged editors

Okay, so I went through 73000 words three times. The third time I found one widdle boohoo. So I hand it to my editor. I think she just makes up some of those corrections to spelling and all.  Can you imagine, she has never heard of a cold steal gun. 

Use an editor.

Now right, rite, or write, and then again wright.

Looking for an artist

Been trying to find an artist, photo or brush, to do a couple of covers for me. Them folks is scarcer than hen's teeth and snake hips put together. These four covers are what's keeping me from ebook publishing all four of my current completed projects. Will pay $50 for art I can use.

Any takers?
