There are so many parts to writing a book, and looking back at my completed novel, it looks like it came relatively easy (even though I know it wasn’t, I’m having a hard time remembering the early difficulties). But now I’m at the start of the process again, and I’m coming to the realisation that many authors have talked about before: even if you’ve written a book, it doesn’t mean you know how to write this book.
This week we’re diving a little more into something I said a couple weeks ago: how proofreading sometimes deals with more suggestions than concretes when it comes to poetry.
Have you ever been writing or editing something, have to stop, and say “this is a job for Google”? I’ve done it so many times, I’ve lost count. So I thought I’d put together a list of things I’ve Googled over the years (for writing and editing) that are hopefully either relatable or entertaining. I know I love to see what other writers Google in the name of their stories!
I’ve touched on this already, but it’s still something that’s fascinating to me and that I’m constantly thinking about: editing poetry and editing prose are two different things. Ok, not entirely, but they’re different enough for me to notice. Let’s take a look!
