What a great weekend. Debbie and I did our publishing workshop with a terrific group of writers and on Sunday I met with my cousin and his wife to discuss fun projects. And today, Monday, I’ve heard from my agent that the rewrite I submitted last week is off to the editor and long-lost students are returning, and it feels like things are happening again.
I’ve got some good links for you, too. Such as:
Write your novel fast. As discussed at our publishing workshop this weekend, if you write 1,000 words a day (which is not a particularly fast pace), at the end of two months you’ll have 60,000 words, which is a novel in many genres. Another month, and you’ve got 90,000 which is women’s fiction/literary fiction range. See? You can do it speedily, if you set a steady pace.
Need to check your grammar? Try this.
Indie authors, do you hire help or do it yourself?
Seven things your mystery novel needs.
That’s what I’ve been reading. How about you?
