Writer in Motion - Week 7

Updated: Jul 30, 2019

A note from Jeni

Writer in Motion has ended, but some of our wonderful writers have wrapped things up with final thoughts about the process. For me, I think I can speak for my fellow editors Maria Tureaud and Justine Manzano of CraftQuest, and Carly Hayward of Book Light Editorial, when I say it was a genuine pleasure to critique so many excellent pieces of writing. Watching each selection go from its roughest draft to a crisp, clear story was fascinating, and getting to meet and interact with so many fantastic writers was a joy.


But the true gold in this project is the process. Watching writers eager with anticipation to get started, how each one worked hard the weeks before the prompt to finish edits, clear their schedules and step in a prepared state to take on the next challenge. --KJ Harrowick


...though in time I came to understand how much of writing is polishing and re-writing, I now have a deeper understanding of that reality, thanks to this unique opportunity to stop and reflect at every step. --Belinda Grant


We think differently, write differently, process critique differently. And that’s okay. All that matters is that we created something from nothing and that is the greatest achievement in all of this. --M.B. Dalto
