⭐️⭐️⭐️ Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynne Truss
I set a backdrop of all my previous versions of my first novel, which I could not get published, so I went the kdp route (though I have been traditionally published since). I think I’ve edited it 100 times now (including formatting) and being my first book I’m a little embarrassed by it (hence the pseudonym), but at the same time it is precious to me, because it was my first. Even though my writing style has advanced, changed, and has grown more concise, I love the story and could sit through it 100 more times! I think many authors feel this way about their first book.
Lynne Truss’ book didn’t tell me anything I didn’t know, though I found it cheeky and entertaining. I was hoping more for advice on when to use an em-dash instead of a comma—stuff like that. I think this book is more for people who might not understand possessives, commas, and the like. Though when to use a comma is still a grey area for me, as I’m sure I use them more than needed. 🤷♀️ Anyone get anything good out if it?
