Well, I don’t know about you, but this new year has got me wanting to clear out all the old stuff that seems to just over take my home!
I am not what one would term ‘a domestic goddess’ so when I decide that I really must get on with some housework, I usually drift off into that dreamy writer zone and waft my way over to my laptop – and where a shiny new room should be, a story is formed instead.
So how did I manage to spend the day yesterday clearing everything out, sorting, folding, cleaning ironing (!) and even hoovering (!!) until a house of joy appeared?
Well, I’ll tell you…
It’s as easy as editing! That’s it. Pretend your house is a story and you have to make it better. Just cut all the stuff that doesn’t help or isn’t needed and hey presto – a streamline sexy clean house. It was a total revelation for me. I know what I’m supposed to be doing and how to do it if I think of it in writing terms. Now, where to submit it?
And on submission news – I have just signed a contract with Beachwalk Press for my new saucy novel, A Clockwork Butterfly- yay! Be sure to check out Beachwalk as they are having a New Year Sale right now – so if you haven’t read Mia’s Books yet, grab it for a bargain.
Now, I’m off to see what else I can ‘edit’.
