Friday at Mabel's

The Dining Room at Mabel Dodge Lodge, Taos, New Mexico
"Literature will tell you what life is, but it won't tell you how to get out of it."--Katagiri Roshi

When writing your book, after you have written it, go back and read it cover to cover nonstop. Read it from the "reader's" point of view--someone who has never read it before, someone who doesn't know you, someone who doesn't know your story. Make notes in the margin--here, here, there--if something doesn't make sense to you, chances are it will not make sense to your reader. Look for redundancies.

Now go write something. Do it. Just do it.

See you in print,

Linda Della Donna
If I can write a book, so can you.
