Between episodes of Phantom Traveler, most of my writing energy has gone into guest content for a blog tour to support FLOTSAM‘s launch.
I seem to do okay with Non Fiction in general (I have written several guest spots on Ketovangelist.com and helped pen the first half of our book Kickass Keto), but these posts are causing me strange behavior. I’m not writing like myself; I’m over-writing. It’s a phenomenon that seems to get worse the more successful I think I’ve been.
Seriously, I don’t know what I’d do without my editor at Parvus. He’s taken a look at every single one of these suckers. I owe him big time and I can’t emphasize enough how much it helps to involve a professional editor in your writing life. Think of all those boxing movies, how you had the no-nonsense coach who stood outside the spotlight but was key in the boxer protagonist getting up again in that low moment. Editors don’t get enough credit but the best ones make good writers look like phenoms.
Anyway, I think that’s all I really want to say today. If you haven’t already, hire an editor. If you’re not sure where to start, may I recommend John Adamus?
