Truth Behind Editing

You’re ready to do edits for me?
You bet, I’ve got my red pen.
Well, okay, thanks. I could use fresh eyes. I’m already on my third draft.
Third, you say? Great. I’ll grab that hard copy, get it back to you in a bit.
Done already?
Nope, just the first five pages.
Oh, whoa, it’s really slashed up. Red.
We’ll be working together for a while.
It could hardly have been a bloodier beginning.

Boundaries Breakdown Short Stories

Effie Graves

From a family of dysfunction, having appropriate boundaries doesn’t come naturally.

Kate and Penny are at each other’s throats. Paul tries to keep out of the way. And mom loves her books.

First in a series of  connected short stories:

WONDER WOMAN IN TRAINING

High school senior, Kate, is on her own for the first time in her life with no one to take care of but herself. Even across several hundred miles, her family crushes her independence and reminds her just how connected she is to a life she wishes she could change.

Sometimes finding your power starts with pretending it’s already there.
