Great talk on the Biz

Okay, so this is going to be the absolute laziest post I've ever done. Even lazier than the guest blogs, because those actually involve a few e-mails back and forth with people.

But I'm swamped with contest entries for my local RWA chapter's contest and trying desperately to finish a ms I told my agent she'd have by the end of May... So, I thought I'd bring the attention of all the drunk writer readers out there to a great discussion on the publishing business currently happening on Karin Tabke's blog.

I haven't had time to read it all myself, but she's had Allison Brennan commenting on the ins and outs of getting on the NYT list, etc.

Great stuff.

Smart, smart answers to some great questions. Also know that Karin and Allison have the same agent, reputedly one of the smartest in the biz.
Great link. I will be checking it often.

You're doing a great job on the contest, Maureen!

I know I've already got my return on the contest entry. I have two plots "in the hopper", rolling around the ol' brain.

I've figured out that I need a year for a story to soak before writing it (my pre-editor REALLY did NOT like the novel I wrote spur of the moment last summer - yikes, we're talking world changing edits).

It is taking me a while to find my writing rhythm. Does that happen with everyone?
