The Revision Process, My Way

The Revision Process, My Way

I am still working on that story I need to re-submit to that e-zine. They are still really interested in it, but it needs revisions. Everyone has their own revision process. Yes, there are “guidelines” as to what you should do to revise a piece, but that process doesn’t work for everyone. The way an author can make their piece really shine is to polish it in the way they…

Heard From an Editor: Do I Really Have a Chance?

As you will learn, I am a very active member of Writing.Com. I not only post my own writing there, but I also review the writing of others there as well.

Getting to know me…

Hello all of you wonderful readers! You are all here reading my blog, presumably, because you heard about the wonderful Krysha Thayer… You haven’t heard about me? I’m shocked! Okay, so I’m not really shocked actually. *laugh* I have been writing since I was a young girl. I would tell my Gramma what to write and she would write the words down for me. In that way, my stories became…
