Literary Surgery

I just finished writing chapter 9a in the saga of Panooksa. I never thought I’d write something that would strike a chord with so many people. People can’t seem to get enough of Panooksa. They want to know what’s going to happen next. Its one thing to have an idea, but it’s an entirely different matter when you want to put on paper, or onto a computer screen. But sometimes what you want to say doesn’t translate very well. That’s where Meg Sorick comes in. She takes the story and smooth’s it out, making it flow far more evenly than I ever could. She takes what I’ve written and performs a form of literary surgery on it. Then she breaks out her literary rolling pin – smoothing out all the uneven spots. She revises the story so you see something much more palatable. So I thank you Meg. And so does everyone who reads a single chapter.
