Rachel has a story in the Scene which is excellent. And she has a post about her story in the Scene, which I would just like to second. Every once in a while, someone asks me why I don’t just self-publish Flock or the Sue Allen project and I still think of that as a last resort option because I really want an editor. Working with the folks at the Scene has made me a better writer because they have literally made me a better writer. Having that experience, I now really feel like there’s a difference between my writing being the best it can be as I can make it, and my writing being the best it can be with an experienced editor.
I really want that next level for my work.
