Pulling Weeds

Our Dear Sister of the Quill, Folio, pulled weeds yesterday. She teased that it may be somehow bad that she calms when doing it. I'd say that is a very good sign for a writer. For what is more like pulling weeds than editing. Among the good words are those that just don't fit, that are disadvantageous, that choke the other words until they die on the page. So weed away, sister. You are letting the good plants (and words) shine through with all their colors. Inkpot admires many tools you have for pulling those pesky weeds!

  1. Ah, well said, Inkpot! Thank you. Perhaps digging in the dirt is akin to letting a story grow as we dig for plot twists. Throwing rocks at characters? Well, throwing rocks is throwing rocks! But when everything blooms, we all know how spectacular that is!
