I’m always excited when synchronicity comes along in my life. So you can imagine how I laughed out loud when I received a Darakwon book in the mail this week, authored by my friend, Suzanne.
Um…hold on a tic. You’re going to need the backstory. So here’s what happened: I just finished the first draft of my latest Darakwon book. But when I received my editor’s notes, she requested a different format (more of a report than story format). Which would require a major revision.
Now, I don’t get too worked up about revisions; it’s part of the writing process. But I sometimes am challenged by my friends at Darakwon, mostly because we communicate a little differently. I did not want to end up doing three or four revisions until we were, quite literally, on the same page with this book. So I asked the editor to send me a sample chapter of the report format and she immediately agreed to send me an entire book.
Perfect! And here’s the book she sent to help me with my revision:
Can you see the author’s name on the bottom? Take my word for it, it’s my friend, Suzanne. But if you want to know how synchronicity comes into this story, you’ll need to zip over and read “Writing Connections: You Never Know” over at The Muffin.
And then you can laugh out loud, too. (And P.S. Thanks, Suzanne! Again.)
I love synchronicity! And you…and Suzanne…so it’s a big win. 🙂
Ha! Right back at you, Lisa! 🙂
I’m still trying to figure out how the book will help you–unless the pages are in English!
Well, the books are in English–the story part–but the rest of the book (the notes, the vocabulary, stuff like that) are in Korean. I just needed to read the story, Pat.
I think it’ll help me. I always do better with “show, don’t tell”, even if that’s a big writer no-no! 😉
Cathy–I am waiting for you to go on your international book tour. I imagine when you do, Koreans will be bowing down and clamoring for you to sign their book.
And perhaps you might need someone to lug around your tubs of books? (wink wink)
Cathy, you always find the good in a situation. I like that about you!
