WHAT HAPPENED FOR MONTHS?
Editing, editing, editing. Naturally I am not myself and have not been since Hong Kong. However, Unbound are extremely thorough. Editing is ironing. You go back and forth until it's smooth and perfect. Editing is the clothes of the body of work. This is really important if you want to look smart and confident, not dishevelled and nuts.
Thank you for being on my team. We have almost come to the end, or rather, only the beginning of this publishing journey together, you and me, me and you. You know what they say: "it takes a village..."
You can also take a look at my blog writengeow dot com for other articles I have written about writing and the writing life, such as Can You Learn to Write Like Tolstoy from a Book?. As usual I would love to hear from you. All feedback, positive, negative, neutral is welcome. You can email me at ivy_ngeow at yahoo dot com. You can connect to me on Instragram, Twitter, FB, Snapchat. In fact there is no way you can't get hold of me - I have a new phone now and it works!
