FIVERR and the Pros and Cons of Editing

FIVERR and Editing Once again, I have seen New Authors get caught up in messes with supposed Editors from FIVERR. I know there are many good ones out there, like with anything else, it's a matter of finding them. RESEARCH every part of building your book. This is why our MOTTO is 'Building Books One … Continue reading FIVERR and the Pros and Cons of Editing

WORD WAR with Cac the Proofreader

Cac The Proofreader back for yet another Word War tip! Homophones: Words that sound alike but are spelled differently and have totally different meanings. We all get tripped up at one point or another. And here's one that is CONSTANTLY being misused--yes, even by very accomplished writers! THERE denotes a place or a specific moment … Continue reading WORD WAR with Cac the Proofreader

WordPress Owners: Please Read

HATE it with a vengeance… It’s bloody awful. I’m in my fifties…I’m a designer and like having control of my blogging. You lose it big time with BLOCK EDITOR… I also work with visually impaired bloggers, this mean’s my work now takes twice as long… ANNOYING… In fact, I’ve not posted since it was forced on me… DISAPPOINTED.

You can get the plugin Classic Editor, however, you need a Business Account to use it…You can get a partial Classic on WP-ADMIN area, though the Justify is missing…Still not found it and I hate untidy posts. Still Muttering and WP have stopped replying to me.


If anyone who reads this is not happy with the new Block Editor, if you don’t want to use it, wish it had never happened, and quite literally hate the thing, then please reblog this post, share it constantly on social media, and let’s see if we can get WordPress to take notice of us.

Dear WordPress, you have started to force the Block Editor on your blogging community. You must have your reasons for this, and I supect they are commerical ones. After all, you have to make a profit, and you continue to provide a basic blogging platform free of charge to the majority of your bloggers.


You will also be aware that a significant percentage of your loyal bloggers absolutelyHATEthis new Block Editor. It is not intuitive, and we can see no good reason for it having to be forced on us.

What You Should Do Now That WordPress Have Officially Retired The Classic Editor

I hate the block editing and may have to find another way to have a website. WIX anyone…

Hugh's Views & News  

If you’re a WordPress.Com user and use the WordPress.Com Classic editor, WordPress recently made an important announcement which will affect you and which you may have missed.

The Classic Editor Is Moving

Well over a year ago, WordPress announced that the Classic editor was being set for retirement. Since the beginning of 2019, I’ve also mentioned this in several of my own blog posts.

On August 13, 2020, WordPress finally announced that their Classic editor was now officially retired. However, it’s not entirely disappearing.

To continue using the Classic editor, users will have to access it via the Classic block on the Gutenberg Block Editor.

The Classic block provides an editing experience that mimics the Classic editor with some added benefits.

When are the changes taking place?

The changes are happening in phases. WordPress will email users informing them when to expect the change.

Your Words or Your Editor’s? – by Jim Dempsey…

Your words or your editors, by Jim Dempsey

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

on Writer Unboxed:

This month’s fiction therapy is a reply to a question from a member of the WU community, Nanette J. Purcigliotti.

I had edited some of Nanette’s work, and she had some questions afterwards, with concerns that I think many writers have about working with an editor. Here’s what she wrote:

“I thank you again for your revised suggestions. But they are your words, not mine. That doesn’t make me comfortable. How do I get around that?”

A fair question, I think, and I completely understand Nanette’s concern. Working with an editor means that some of that person’s suggestions, and even words, could make their way into your work, a work that is deeply personal to you. And this can be done to the point that it doesn’t feel like your words. I can get that, and I can understand that an author would be uncomfortable with that.
