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.
- An Agent or Editor is Interested! What Next?!, from Pub(lishing) Crawl: Do you know what to do when you reach the next step in your publishing journey? This blog post can help. Excerpt: “You read the email and it hits you: a publishing professional wants to work with you! And it’s not a mistake, because they even wrote a little paragraph about why they loved your manuscript!”
- From 2,000 to 300–Why You’re Writing Too Much, from Writer UnBoxed: Quite often, writers are told they should strive to reach a certain number of words each day. That might not be the best daily goal, though. Excerpt: “Odds are, you’re trying to write too many words a day. You’ve probably heard that you should write a thousand words per day. Or two thousand. Or five. Or ten.”
