One author's Top Ten Rules for Writers

This afternoon I'm heading to Oceanside to do a presentation on revision at the Oregon Coast Children's Book Writer's Workshop.

Yesterday someone on twitter pointed me to an article in the LA times, and what do you know, a lot of things in this article are in my revision presentation! Hooray!!

I think it's an article worth reading. The rules come from author Janet Fitch, author of WHITE OLEANDER. I think it was   who, on twitter yesterday, said something like - a big part of revision is remembering the writing rules we already know. I totally agree!!

And tomorrow, I go through THE DAY BEFORE one last time for a final round of edits. 

I'm looking forward to a week of reading, reading, reading after this busy week is finished.

Happy Wednesday!!
