I might have missed something…

It’s been a few months since I published Double Take, my first mystery. In preparation for some publicity, I re-read the first chapter and to my horror and embarrassment, found two errors (and it was a short chapter). The more I read, the more errors I found. How frustrating.

Two dear friends are willing to re-read the book as well and we are all going to combine our info to (hopefully) clean up the text further.

The errors are not massive, many having to do with spacing and punctuation. At one point I seem to have used a colon followed by quotation mark and then an apostrophe!

A big shout out to those who have read the book and given me such positive feedback. I’ll keep on working, finding mistakes and trying to fix them.

How to un-block…

Writers often share stories of being blocked. They sit down to write and the white screen mocks them or their characters are in a pickle without a clear exit plan. Twitter, especially, is filled with stories about being blocked.

So I ask you…how do YOU get un-blocked? What are the techniques or events that have lead you to your breakthroughs?
