I woke up to the fact that I was a writer when I was 42...

It took me nearly 20 more years to get over the idea that what I wrote had to be perfect the first time I wrote it...

"Editing"? Hmmm... Ya know, I'm not a dumb person but I sure had some dumb ideas buried in my subconscious.

My first books were written and published with no outside input.

My Work-In-Progress has had a ton of input--from when I had the first, bare idea to right now and it won't be published till April.

So, today, on Twitter, I met a 19-year-old woman, went to her blog, and watched a video of her telling me what it took me over 60 years to learn...

Her name is Amanda J. Spindle.

Here's Her blog.

And, here is her consummately wise video about what it takes to write a book :-)
