Saturday Grab Bag: Mashup

30 Apr

Mashup:

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!
