Thread Name: BS: What are the absolutes of good writing?
Subject: RE: BS: What are the absolutes of good writing?
Frank, I greatly appreciate your comments; I agree and have used such thinking in most of the writing I've done over the past thirty years, including for various newspapers and for my recent book. I've also edited for a couple of other writers, recently.
I know what you mean about handling artists. I was chief cook and bottle washer for my brother for over twenty years, promoting him and his classical compositions on a next to nothing budget. Heck I even sang and turned pages at a couple of concerts AND hand-dubbed a ton of cassettes. Lotsa fun for a bit.
The senior editor at the freelance job place to which I applied asked the thread title question of me and I was just interested in what Mudcatters had to say. (I thought it would be a fun thread and it has been!:-)I've already sent in my answer (posted previously) and my editing test, so am just waiting to hear back from them, now.
Now, I am really under the gun as I signed up for a booth at the Wyoming Book Festival coming up on the 15th. Having to get handouts ready, a new website up and running, and books ordered! It's exciting, but a little nervewracking.
