Texas Sweethearts Writing Tip—A PEEK AT REVISIONS

From Texas Sweetheart Jo Whittemore, we have today's writing tip focusing on REVISIONS! It's a perfect glimpse into her newly received revision letter for her latest book sale.


Happy Week from The Texas Sweethearts!


  1. Great advice!!! Thanks so much for sharing! :)

  2. HEY - you Sweethearts are all SO INCREDIBLY PHOTOGENIC!!

    Liked your lovely spark of humour - you gave a logical and very calm explanation whilst holding that THICK PILE of paper. PHEW - if I ever get in that situation I think I'd just unplug my computer and watch trashy TV forever and ever and ever and......

    LOVED IT! THANKS...just curious...when you dolly birds meet for lunch...what on earth do you EAT?

  3. Oh, how cool. I can't wait for my turn. *she grinds her heels into the carpet.* I can't WAIT! Woot

    Jo, I am the winner of Front Page Face-Off over at Tricia's blog. I received it and have already become so involved I can't wait until tonight to finish it. Super funny. I love it.

    Thank you signing it and your wonderful words. I love your sense of humor. Soon I will send you a copy of my book. Oh, wait! That was dream. I still have to query agents. Soon!!!! =)

    Take care Jo.

  4. OOPS, I meant to thank you for writing such a great read. YAY for you.

  5. You're welcome, Tabitha!

    Aw, you're sweet, Ann Marie. Let's see, for lunch today we had two curry bowls and a cheese and tomato sandwich followed up by a yummy cookie! And a pot of tea for each :)

    Robyn, I'm so glad you're enjoying Jo's book!

  6. Tabitha, I hope the advice comes in handy! Good luck with your writing!

    Ann Marie, bless your heart! I'm self-conscious about being on video (but not about still pictures, oddly enough), so that makes my day! As for the thick stack of paper, my left bicep is now twice as large from hefting it. And the FANCY name for my sandwich was a Croque Monsieur.

    Robyn, yes! I saw the generous portion of stars you gave me on GoodReads, so thank you for that! And thank you for finding the humor in my book. (^_^)
    I'll also take you up on that copy of YOUR book when it gets published!

  7. Great tips! Love these vlogs!

  8. This is great! I like how you have your tips written on the vlog as you're speaking about it. High tech girl!

  9. Kelly, you're welcome! Glad you enjoy!

    Christina, ha! Thanks! Stick around for revisions, part 2. It's gonna get cuh-razy!

  10. Loved your vlog, Jo. I'm looking forward to part 2

  11. Thanks, Vonna! Part 2 will be talking about handling revisions using different methods.
