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.
1. How A Writer Quiets His Self-doubt, from Terrible Minds: Is self-doubt getting you down? It happens to every writer. Let Chuck Wendig give you a pep talk. Excerpt:”Self-doubt is one of those things you’re going to contend with as a creative person. It’s just how it is. It sucks. I know. And I’m sorry.”
2. Are You a Push Marketer or a Pull Marketer?, from Jane Friedman: How you market your work can make a big difference in whether or not people are likely to buy it. It’s important not to be too pushy. Excerpt: “When selling anything from books to refrigerators, we need to be an advocate for the buyer, not for our product. We want to draw people to a conclusion to buy, not push them.”
