Think Small: Guest Post by Eva Lesko Natiello

Today I’m thrilled to be guest blogging on – home of Candace Johnson, the fiercest comma-wielding copyeditor west of the Atlantic. Check out her blog where you’ll find a steady stream of writing tips and industry news. My post today is for anyone who is eager to make real change this year, whether it’s in their writing life or beyond that. Don’t wait for the right time to do it. Do it now!

Change It Up Editing

I love editing, and I’m lucky enough to work with some very talented writers. Since the fall of 2013 I’ve had the pleasure of editing several wonderful novels, and I am excited to share them with you when the time is right. The authors are busy reviewing and revising  now in anticipation of publishing their novels, but I want to whet your appetite with this guest post by Eva Natiello, whose novel The Memory Box had me dreaming about her characters—now that’s writing to get under your readers’ skin! If you don’t know Eva, you simply must go to her website at and sign up for updates—you’re going to want to read The Memory Box the day it’s released, trust me!

Not only is Eva a wonderful storyteller, but she’s funny to boot. If you missed her previous guest post, “Stormy with a Chance of Writing,” be sure to check it…

  1. Theres no point in waiting for the perfect time to start writing or editing a novel. No such thing exists.


    What a great guest post. And the above is biblical. Nobody knows it, but when Moses came down from Mount Sinai, the above was number 11.

    PS I loved the opening words, about how the MB had that editor dreaming about your characters.

  2. Brilliant advice for writers herein. I always say that “Nothing never happens”, and that fits with Eva’s propensity to recognize the gems in every moment – but how does she manage to hang onto those scraps of paper she writes them on!
