I thought it would be fun to share quick, thought-provoking tidbits from my heart every week. Sometimes I find myself with these short, not-quite-long-enough-t0-make-a-blog-post thoughts that pop up every so often, and then Lightbulb! Why can’t they be a blog post? They might be thoughts on writing, reading, editing, spiritual life, or life in general. They might be serious, humorous, or just plain crazy.

Because of your growing – let’s call it, writer maturity level – with every edit you make, you change the entire course of the rest of your written manuscript.

Your turn: What do you think??
