Funny Things Writers do…

Ok, so we all have things happen to us that make us just laugh at ourself. None of us are immune from doing things that in hindsight, we question our sanity.

So, today I’m talking the Oops of writing…

Here we go!

1: Someone from the 1800’s can’t flip a switch for power. Yes, it’s something that happens to the best of us. But, it’s a face palm moment when your editor asks you if the book was no longer a historical romance.

2: When your editor texts you and says, ‘Do you even know the name of your main character?’ Yep, renamed midway, then went back to original in the same manuscript. (Character Lists are essential!)

3: You publish your book, then realize that your name is not on the cover. AT ALL!

4: This one hits too close to home. You’re writing more than one book at a time, and you get the storylines mixed up. My editor hates at times! I know she does! You can’t be riding a horse across the wild west one moment, then in a limo headed from the airport in the next chapter. Yep, I did that!

5: The last one for this post, but a goody. Hit submit and realize you submitted the proof copy, not the edited copy… Enough said!

I could go on and on, but you see where I’m going with this. As a writer, you have to laugh and move forward. There is way too many voices in our head to comprehend the simplest task. And yes, that sounds like maybe we need brain scans, but it’s normal for a writer.

Add to my list and give all of us some comfort in knowing we’re not completely crazy.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

And remember to laugh… Laugh hard… Then continue on…
