Plankeye Publishing


Jesus’ words from Matthew 7:3-5, as recorded in the Bible, were my inspiration for the name Plankeye Publishing.

So often, it is easier to see in others what we can’t see in ourselves. I can mentally take a red pen to most any article in the paper and “make it better”; but I often miss my own mistakes.

I love to edit; but am so self-conscious about my own grammatical shortcomings, that I have hesitated to offer my services in this realm. I fully acknowledge that it is much easier for me to see your “speck” than my “plank”. Maybe there are even mistakes in these paragraphs…

Writing improves when we get fresh perspective from another set of eyes; but it’s often difficult to find a safe place for exposing our thoughts.

Aiming for perfection can be absolutely paralyzing when trying to put pen to paper.

My policy is to encourage people to write poorly for their first draft. Just get the ideas down, messy as they may be. Organization happens later.

The freedom to fill up a page with chaotic ideas can help overcome the fear that keeps people from ever leaving the starting block. Concise sentences can be achieved later on.

Whether you are writing a simple owner’s manual, trying to share your life story, penning copy for a blog, trying to improve your creative writing (or your kid’s), whatever it is… I would like to help. I can’t promise perfect paragraphs; but I will aim to help you improve your work, and learn how to make the writing process less painful.

I'm not sure what to say here: I once got second place in a dog-look-alike-contest? I know how to fold a fitted sheet? I'm pretty much a poster child for social backwardness - at least as far as social media is concerned; but I have some stories I think I'm supposed to share and am attempting to do that here, in this space.
