There once was a girl bent to query
her novel about some daft faerie
she opened with "He..."
The agent did flee
And now the girl's gorging cold dairy.
1. Ahhhh...the debate about opening your novel with dialogue. You can click HERE to see what agent John Sternfeld of the Irene Goodman agency has to say on the subject (plus some other query-don't tips!).
There is a blog called Falling Leaflets
a follower, here's what he or she gets
Writing tips galore
scroll down and there's more
You'll love all the info, is my bet(s)
2. Seriously - if you aren't following Jess, you need to check out her blog of wonderful writery references. The other day she posted this great list of 50 things your novel will be judged on. Check it out HERE!
There once was a writer who cried,
"I think my creative muse died!"
No worries, take stock
It's just writer's block
Eat chocolate to pass the time, bide.
3. Let's see, I've recently blogged about Brain Freeze and using I-Tunes shuffle to magic 8-ball my way through writer's block. Why? Because I have this accursed affliction!! But, I want to thank everyone for their encouraging comments and tips on what gets you through it. Everything from eating copious amounts of chocolate to visualizing your story via a brain-movie - I appreciate the support and suggestions! And just for fun - I googled some other ideas for getting through writer's block that you can read about HERE.
If there's anything you'd like to add/comment on - I'd LOVE to hear it!
And that, my lovely peeps, is all I've got for you this Writerly Wednesday! Happy Writing/Editing out there!
