Quotable Tuesday

“You write to discover what you want to say. You rewrite to discover what you have said and then rewrite to make it clear to other people.”

  1. Stopping by from the She Writes Blogger Ball Redux. Glad to have found you. Seriously impressed by all the books you read. I’m a single mom who works as a marcom writer and is launching another business as well … I can barely finish ONE book a month! I hope to someday get back to reading at a pace like yours. 🙂

  2. I love Tuesday’s quote. I am lucky – I think rewriting/editing is one of the most pleasurable parts of the writing process. It’s like the final coat of pain – I can’t wait to see what “hue” the walls will take. Great blog, thanks. I’m here as part of the redux ball…

    • Dawn- You are lucky! I find it pleasurable at times. But it’s where the true story is revealed.
      Sam-I love that- clarity over cleverness. I also have to watch out for choosing clarity over pretty sentences.
      Katrina- You are quite welcome:)

  3. Hi I am a little late to the parade. I am stopping over from the blog hop. I was trying to visit all of the blogs listed and it is just taking forever! So many good blogs. I enjoyed your post on YA writing/reading as I am currently working on a YA book. Great Blog I am looking forward to following you.

    • Jennifer- Wow! Visiting all of the blogs is an impressive feat! Thanks so much for stopping by. Good luck with your YA novel. I have been immersing myself in reading them lately, bringing stacks home from the library. I’ll post about them at the end of the month:)
