Editing a manuscript is like editing your life! Search for the mistakes and fix them!Book One of The Sweet Melissa Memoir Series has been revised! No worries!

If you’re stubborn like me and you want to do it alone, then be prepared for the criticism. Go through the pages of your manuscript/life one word at a time. Find an easy flow. Don’t make it complicated with terms you don’t understand and ask for help when you can. There’s one thing I’ve found to be true, and that’s putting comma’s in the right place. I habitually overuse them
. I guess they are my “NEW DRUG of CHOICE” and sometimes I follow my own rules of punctuation. If I need a pause or a break, I shove one in! I am a comma addict, but I’m a happy o…

Well, so much to learn and so little time. LOVE-PEACE-HAPPINESS-STRENGTH-susie

anyway! Sure, I am no pro and I am not a doctor, but I have a genuine real life experience and a story to tell. I hope that you will open your mind to the possibility, or shall I say the reality, that addiction is indeed a disease and not a choice.
