Proofreading

On Facebook I am friends with an up and coming author, Liam Reese. After reading “A Huntman’s Fate”, the prequel to his soon to be released new book. He sent out an inquiry about interest in joining his Proofreading Club. I was intriqued and I signed up. Now don’t get all excited, volunteer status only and there is a whole passel of us doing it. However it has rekindled a small spark of the joy I find in writing. Yes, I know editing and proofing is a royal, but necessary pain. I once read it is easier to read and learn from bad writing than good writing. Now I am not saying this author is bad. In fact I have quite enjoyed his writing style and stories. By helping him, I help myself become a better writer. 

Showing is hard, telling is so much easier and yet it sticks out when you can see first hand in a work in progress. Once you can see it and understand it, it becomes easier to spot in your own writings. Or would be if I wasnt’t hiding from them by blogging. 

If you are interested in a new fantasy author check out Liam Reese and A Huntman’s Fate. He is on Facebook and is a nice feller. Also I will suggest checking out Sean Hinn and his Epic Fantasy FB group. They are a hoot and full of great book suggestions.

Cheers, james
