|I need to hang this around my neck.|
The bank account is overdrawn, the gas gauge is on empty, and pain in my hip delays me from getting out of bed. I wonder if I should even attempt to beat my hair into submission — will a good hair day even be possible? And 5 minutes ago I got an email that a review of my book has gone live. My self-published collection of previously published columns wrapped in a cover featuring my own digital art. I've already been warned that there are uncaught typos, which is a true exercise in humiliation for an editor. I realize of course, that the old saying that "a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client" also applies to self published writers. A writer who edits her own work is apt to miss too much because she is too familiar with it. Add lousy typing skills to that and you have a dangerous mix. Still, I hold out hope that content will win over form, even though I have been less than kind to others in that respect (karma?). So, here is the link to a very different kind of review, I really like the format, and am taking to heart the constructive criticism. As much as I can on a Monday!
