New post on my editing website: The writing and editing process for self-publishers

I’ve got a new post on my editing blog, which you might be interested in. It’s about the writing and editing process, as it relates to self-publishing authors. Here’s the link: https://kendraolsoneditorial.com/2020/06/25/the-writing-amp-editing-process-for-self-publishers/

Thanks for reading.

Have a great week.

An experiment

It’s been a long time since I’ve written anything specifically for this blog. Mostly this is because I’ve consciously shifted towards giving more of my energy over to my editing work and writing for my editing blog, when I have the time to. But it’s also because this blog became, primarily, a book blog. When I took on more paid editing work, I made a deliberate decision to shift my focus towards helping authors earlier on in their writing journeys. While the book blog was fun, it also took up a lot of time and energy that I needed to devote to my editing business instead. I still love reading—if I didn’t I wouldn’t have chosen to become an editor—but I (mostly) no longer feel the need to review books for my blog.

However, I do still like to write and not everything I like to write about has a home on my editing website/blog. So I’ve decided to experiment with shifting the focus of this blog (again). I’d like to use it to write about whatever takes my fancy at the moment—general musings on life, or whatever. In one way, this seems counterproductive—this is a reading and writing blog that I began to help promote my novel, then used to help promote other authors’ work. But, in another way, it is a writing blog and it is my platform. So….

I hope you’ll stick with me through this experiment but, if you’d rather not, then that’s okay too.

Until next time. Stay safe and stay well.
