“Editing. It’s like dieting; except a lot more violent.” ~ Leya Delray
I, for one, have not dieted in a long time. My memories of the process are still vivid though. Therefore, I confidently say: I can relate. As for the quote’s part on “editing”, I know that my confidence is incomparably stronger; for, I have been self-editing and editing for other authors nonstop for an extensive period of time. So, this statement holds true as far as I am concerned.

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.
