Writing Resources

Molly and I had our "Romance 101" workshop accepted for the 2012 RWA National conference. It's going to be fun (and interesting to figure out how to squeeze what was originally a six hour workshop into one hour...)

I need to turn in the final draft of the handout today. Nothing like leaving things to the last minute.

Help a girl out. Does anyone have either a) a great resource to recommend for beginner writers (online or a book), or b) an example of something (jargon, craft concept, publishing term) they didn't understand when they first got started.

Oh, I am a lazy blogger today. And a lazy handout preparer. But I did do a rather long post on my own blog earlier in the week if you're interested in more meat.

I'm still trying to figure out half the terms!

How about "sell through" and "co-op" for unfamiliar terms?

Stephanie Doyle said...

Yeah - I struggled with "pitch" vs query vs synospsis vs partial.

And I thought a co-op was a vacation place in Florida.

And my favorite writing resource... Why Drunk Writer Talk - of course!

Good ones! Thanks :)

Your post about the author stuck in the middle - is brilliant. You are brilliant. And that is what I'll be saying during our workshop because you have done ALL of the work...
