I am editing another chapter drawn on trauma I endured – and just ate too much chocolate to get through it. I want my books to always be deep, real, honest, and in the end, healing…. And this manuscript – it has so much of my trauma and healing in it.

I don’t usually eat while I edit or write – but sometimes I just need that extra push to get through… I did not take a pic of all the chocolate wrappers. Heh. I also used other techniques to get through – getting up and doing a menial task for a few minutes while my brain and heart worked through what I needed to, and moments of positive distraction. After I finish this chapter I’m taking a break.

I so hope this book will speak to others and help them.  #amwriting #amediting

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
