  1. I was on the page of wanting to be me – my words – my story – my way -then I started working with an editor. The changes she made – subtle – yet critical – still my voice – but now one anyone (well almost!) can read and take in. Good luck out there -you’ve got something!

      • ha! I’m going to beat you… :))
        I probably should write in my native language, would be easier to sell.
        Anyway, I’m enjoying my english writing style lol and thats what matters
        Yes, it is normal. Writing business is a business nowadays (just like everything else), so I’m expecting to get kicked here and there..

      • Nah, I didn’t mean all that as an insult lol. It’s true, though. Rejection is a part of the writing world. Your English can only get better, too.

        Did you know that the book Gone With the Wind was initially judged to be an extremely poorly written book by the author’s peers? It wasn’t until an editor came from the north into Atlanta (I think it was) and read the book, that the author was published. She was a reporter with no formal training. 🙂

      • I never heard this story, but I love the movie (one of my favs, I always liked Rhett #crush)…mmm, yes, it is happening often, I’d tell you lots of similar stories about Gogol and Dostoevsky :)) I dont think I am a Dostoevsky tho, but poor gram are a fixable thing. I dont care much about it, I’ve learned it by myself when I was 29 and Im kinda proud of it 🙂
