For the next few weeks I will still be working with a deadline for my book “Dethroning Male Headship – because it doesn’t have a leg to stand on.”
My Bible is about worn out as I have researched.
My mind is in editing mode, and not writing mode. I have a wonderful editor but my goodness! that woman wants me to be wordy.
Those of you who read my blog regularly know that I am not wordy. I think you can say a whole lot in just a few words. But she says “Add more here.”; “clarify that”; make sure your readers can connect the dots; “you can say something like….”
My writing style is to write in a conversational tone, but apparently that is a big no-no in the literary world.
The past weekend I have been taking out all the “I” (how do make I plural?), and the ‘we’s’; and the ‘us’s’! What a challenge. I did get to keep the last bit “A word from the author” in the first person.
Then she will say something like “Wow! I never saw it that way!”
That is the reaction I am hoping for in the whole book.
God bless you all. Please know that I am working hard, and have not for a single moment forgotten our mission – women’s equality.
