Moving Day and Writing

I am preparing to move, and I had a staging expert in, to help sort out what should go where, for the sale.

As I read through the recommendations she made, in regards to sorting, making rooms look good to prospective buyers, and donating to charity what I can no longer use or need to keep, it occurred to me that this process is somewhat like editing one’s writing.

As I edit, I pare down the too long sentences, substitute better words, add descriptions and overall, make the piece more attractive to agents and to readers.

I am now off to sort through what is the result of thirteen years in one residence.

Keep editing those drafts!
