Advice for Writers
A few weeks ago, I was a “speed-editor” for a conference. It was kind of like speed-dating, which I’ll have to write about another time! Writers brought their pieces to 7 editors and we spent 7 minutes with each one, trying to help them find their voice, or their audience, or the purpose for their piece. Lauren Winner (Girl Meets God, Mudhouse Sabbath) was also an editor. I was a little bit intimidated as I am a big fan of her writing. But it was great fun and I’m glad I did it. Only wish I’d read this beforehand. It’s from Sue Monk Kidd’s site (Secret Life of Bees, Mermaid Chair).
