Broke One of My Cardinal Rules

I had the best intentions, honest I did.  My last blog I said I was going to sit on "Zombie Apocalypse:Redemption." I broke one of my cardinal rules this morning...I started fluffing and editing the story.

All it took was a suggestion which hit home from fellow author Thomas Wilson.  "Up the Ante."  After reading the story this morning, he was right.  The beginning needed a scene or two to raise expectations and the anxiety level of the reader. I've added 2,000 words and haven't stopped yet.

Keep writing and loving the Lord.


  1. 2,000 words this morning? I think you were ready to go at it again. ; )

  2. I have to be able to edit as I go, or the mistakes in the previous chapters drive me up the wall. Plus, if I don't go back and tweak details as needed, I usually end up with a tangled mess at the end of the first draft. I find it much easier to sort problems out as I go, rather than saving everything for one big dump at the end.


I love to hear from you! Agree, Disagree, matter. Even if it's to say you were here.
