“An aspiring writer should write one time and edit ten times.” ~ Amit Kalantri
Please, take the reference to “ten” in the quote above only as a suggestion when the number of editing rounds is concerned. I do.

I am simply hülya. Life has given me several of the utmost valuable gifts: A daughter, a grandson and a granddaughter. Friends who are ready and willing to come to my rescue regardless of the level of despair I am in are also in plentitude. They are my cankardeşlerim, what we may call "soul sisters" in English. As for the post-birth acquisitions of some importance to some (or many) people, I fulfill professional functions as a Penn State Liberal Arts faculty; an incorrigible lifelong educator with endless enthusiasm to teach and learn; the Director of Inner Child Editing Services; a writer - poetry equals my life, after my child and grandchildren, of course. I am also a literary translator. When it comes to my worldview, I am a dedicated and devoted humanist.

Oh so true Dr. Yilmaz! The written words are beautiful. The edits–essential!
I have been working on one of my manuscripts for quite some time now. The number of my editing rounds has sky-rocketed . . . And, I am not even done yet. Thank you for lending an ear and your professional insight!
