    Cross-posted from, where I was the guest blogger this week.

    I love writing, but editing comes in a close second. Very close. Writing is like mining for gemstones, but editing carves them into sparkling facets.

    So when my dear friends, Dana and Jessica, who make up the writing team Kirby Howell, asked me to edit their YA novels, Autumn in the City of Angels and Autumn in the Dark Meadows, I was happy to oblige. Editing their work turned out to be not only a favor to them but to myself. It helped me develop and solidify some new editing techniques, and it drew my attention to potential problems in my own work.

    I want to pass on some of what I gleaned from the process to those who might not find editing the natural delight I do. 🙂
