52 — How to Not-Suck at Writing

Get an editor!

The amazing Arthur A. Levine enlightening attendees of the SCBWI-LA Working Writer’s Retreat, 2009

Not so easy.

I know all about that!

So, despite never having won a lottery, (I even missed out on a door prize I had won because I was in the restroom at the time) I have entered into the drawing for a free substantive edit of a completed manuscript generously being offered by Deborah Halverson at her blog — Dear Editor.

If you’re interested, the deadline is midnight of April 14, so hop to it.

Wish me luck! And, the same to you.

A big thank you to my dear friend Tricia at Talespinning for spreading the word.

      Yes, Lupe. Always! Hope the photo brought back good memories! And, got you to singing the chorus.

      Of course, I didn’t win the lottery this time either. Oh well.

      Are you coming to Agent’s Day?

    I went last year and certain participants did not play by the rules. The groups were instructed ask questions about the agent’s work, not pitch projects. But certain law-breakers dominated the group with their pitches.

      Yeah. People always cheat! And in this instance I think it hurts rather than helps. I wouldn’t want to be the next person used by an agent in their talk at a major conference as an example of what NOT to do 🙂 I’m looking forward to this year’s line-up…as always.
