This Week in the Writing World...June 17


by Brooke Favero

I loved Scott Eagan's post Just Keep Swimming this week. He says a good writer should have a manuscript in each of the following categories:
  • A story outlined
  • A story in the initial draft phase
  • A story in the critique phase
  • A story in the submission phase
  • ...and hopefully a story in the marketing phase
I've got WIPs in 3 of the 5 categories. Maybe by the end of the year I can bump my WIP number to 4. How about you?

Understanding Industry and Market
Publishing Time @ Pimp My Novel.
The Myth of the Unearned Advance @ The Steve Laube Agency.
The Pubbed Writer's 7 Deadly Sins @ Writer Unboxed.

Querying
World Enough and Time @ Dystel & Goderich Literary Management.
Developing the Hook in a Query Letter @ Guide to Literary Agents.
Email Etiquette @ BookEnds.
Rejection and Recovery @ Nathan Bransford.
The Gift of Insecurity @ Rachelle Gardner.
Writer's Block? @ Janet Reid.

Well, maybe two-and-a-half for me. But I'm workin' on it!

Nice of you to soothe my conscience about all those WIPs festering in my computer files.
