REBLOG: Take Chiritian’s wise words to heart here. Great Advice!
In a ideal world, you’d never have to edit your own work, but well, you know the drill… life’s not fair… So, how do you go about editing your posts? Here are five simple (and kind of easy) steps to editing your blog posts.
I’ve had a lot to smile about this past week. Chuck, a friend of mine over at The Reluctant Poet (who is a sweetheart for sharing some of my work) made some suggestions about formatting my poetry and prose for my upcoming book. I’m sure glad that he did!
The process of formatting, editing, and proofing everything has been tedious. But it’s paying off! While putting said book together, I’ve discovered, what I think, may be a few hidden gems. In my humble opinion. 🙂
In order to rework these poems, I have been forced to look at my work with fresh eyes. Doing this has given me a completely new view of things and I am amazed at how differently I see things that I thought were just fine and set in stone the way they were.
Below, is a poem I wrote a long time ago. It’s always been a favorite of mine. It deals with the struggles of resisting sin. It never received the response that I felt it to be worthy of. After a little tweaking and restructuring, I think that it now may be ready for the spotlight.
I call this Skirmish of Sins. I hope you like it. 🙂
Yesterday still ringing

I found out about the program Scrivener through one of my favorite bloggers here, https://jessicabakkers.com/ Jessica Bakkers. She just happened to mention the program in a comment so I checked it out.
