    There’s no point in waiting for the perfect time to start writing or editing a novel. No such thing exists.


    What a great guest post. And the above is biblical. Nobody knows it, but when Moses came down from Mount Sinai, the above was number 11.

    PS I loved the opening words, about how the MB had that editor dreaming about your characters.    

    1. wait, I wasn’t the first to say that?!?! Moses?!!?
      thanks, Bob!

    Brilliant advice for writers herein. I always say that “Nothing never happens”, and that fits with Eva’s propensity to recognize the gems in every moment – but how does she manage to hang onto those scraps of paper she writes them on!

    1. Ha! good point, Peggy. If they are not “sticky” notes, I’m really in trouble!

  1. Oh my, “The fiercest comma-wielding copyeditor west of the Atlantic” is quite a reputation, Eva! Thanks for another wonderful guest blog!

    1. Perfect for a desk placard, no? And thanks again for inviting me!
