Saturday Grab Bag: Mashup

30 Apr


Here are some great links on writing, the industry, and all things book related. Some are serious, and some are just downright hilarious. We highly recommend you read them!

-An incredibly inspirational post about what REAL writing success means.  A must read!

-A thought provoking post about writing attitudes.  Do you fall into these extreme categories?

-Kiersten White (author of Paranormalcy) offers great suggestions for amping up your story’s pacing.

-An amazing post by Libba Bray (author of A Great and Terrible Beauty) about self-confidence while writing–essentially, we all have our low moments…and they always kinda suck.

-Sooz’s Query Day for the month of May will go live on Monday at 5 PM EST.  If you’re within the first 10 submissions, you’ll get a free query critique!

-You don’t have to have a book coming out to appreciate the message behind this post: don’t be afraid!

-Read this post first!  She does a great job of laying out those first critical steps.

-Want to get your novel critiqued AND help a good cause? Writer Kat Brauer offers a critique of 250 words for every $1 you donate to her charity: water fundraiser! Plus, she has a HUGE line-up of agents and authors offering critiques! Be sure to stop buy–it’s running for the next 2 months!

-Our very own Kat Zhang interviewed on the teen-writers website Noveltee(n)–thanks to Taryn for the link!
