Yet another guest post from me today for ‘Daughter of the Drackan’s’ Blog Tour, stopping at Queen of All She Reads.
I was asked to write about the difference between how I work and think as a writer, and how I switch my brains into editor mode. This was a fun post for me to write – and it’s amazing how closely related the two are!

‘Editing mode’ is a lot more structured, analytical, and ‘on the screen’ rather than ‘in my head’. Knowing the ins and outs of proper editing (i.e. grammar, punctuating, sentence structure, plot and character elements, etc.) have always come naturally for me. I chalk that up to the extensive repertoire of reading I’ve managed to amass in the last twenty years. I read voraciously even still. It feels like a second limb in the back of my head…something that’s quite normal for me, and sometimes others can’t understand it and are even amazed by it.
