As a published crime writer I'm going to post what it's like to be a professional writer, the good and the bad days, writing and not writing.
Well, here it is May 12 and I really miss your postings. I hope everyone is okay. If you can't think of anything to say... then I have a question you might answer. In all your years of writing books, did you ever come up short in word count? In other words, where do you have a tendency to be too lean? I'm a lean writer--a real problem, as I see it. I struggle to make 70,000 words or more. My agent asked me to add 10,000 words to my 60,000 word novel and I tried but found myself just doing revision with no word increase. I know it can go to 70,000 words plus -- but someone smarter than I am (like an editor) will have to tell me where the book is lacking. All comments and suggestions welcome.
