I love regularly reading tips and advice articles in certain subjects — particularly writing and publishing. I don’t always need the information right then, but I know that it’ll eventually come in handy. Or at least, I hope it will.
I know there are a lot of other people out there who feel the same way I do, but sometimes it can be difficult to find every useful advice article that’s out there. So I thought I’d bring you a few. Here are the tips and advice articles that jumped out at me the most over the past week.
- When to Put the Baby (Your Book) to Bed, from Pub(lishing) Crawl: We’ve all given up, or at least thought of giving up, on a novel at some point. How do you know when you’re ready? Or maybe not ready, but that you should? Excerpt: “Think of every story you write as class you’ve taken on how to make your manuscript stronger. All manuscripts teach us something.”
- 4 Types of Literary Agents, from Books & Such Literary Management: Every agent has their own way of doing their job. Some of them have some traits in common, though. Here’s a look at four common types. Excerpt:4 “Recently I had a conversation with Dee, a potential new client, and our chat turned to four different approaches agents take to teaming up with authors. I explained to Dee some of those methods. I think they’re instructive in understanding how an agent can help to structure an author’s writing career.”
