While revising my manuscript I discovered something. I've been talking the talk but not walking the ... um, yeah. That cliche.
But really, revising is such an eye-opener. The sad thing is, this wasn't my first revision. So, while wading through I was amazed/disturbed/downright disgusted by the plethora of passive sentences and weak verbs in my manuscript.
I've learned alot about craft but apparently didn't apply my knowledge to every chapter.
So, have you ever revised your manuscript (or your life) and realized that while you technically "knew" something, you hadn't been writing (living) it?
