Writing can’t happen fast. It needs thinking and talking with your muse. Fast writing is generally bad writing, and first writing is worse. All writing needs rewriting, and don’t you forget it! I didn’t want to send Nellie into the putrid hold of the coffin ship, so I made up this way, totally unbelievable, for her to stay out. Today she must go. Please pray for her, it’s awful in there.

Jane has loved writing from the time she learned to hold a pencil. Her writing journey moved from that pencil to personal computers through the seventies, she edited for a hospital public relations department. The eighties found her owning a public relations business, publishing newspaper and magazine articles, and directing communications for a large church. In the nineties she published her first book and led critique groups and writers' workshops. In the twenty-first century she became a teaching consultant for the National Writing Project, published several more books, and began an editing business. Jane also loves raising chickens, dogs and alpacas, gardening, oil painting, swimming and hanging out with her family. View all posts by Jane Carlile Baker, Author, Editor, Teaching Consultant
