Tricks of the Trade

Lately, I've been innundated with e-mails from people asking "how the heck can I publish a book?" or "how do I write a magazine article?" While I'm thrilled to receive your e-mails, sadly I don't have all (or most!) of the answers. Big surprise, huh? ;)

Here are a few good recommendations to everyone:

Read magazines such as The Writer and Writer's Digest.

Get guidelines for magazines you want to target.

Get a Writer's Market.

Visit your local library or buy books on freelancing and novel writing. Check out Amazon for a killer selection.

Check out writer boards such as Absolute Write and Verla Kay for a community of writers of all levels.

Try these tips and if you still have questions, post 'em here! :)

Totally random, but I'm getting SUPER excited about the Twilight movie. Crazy excited. Like maybe I should read Twilight for the third time excited. I can't wait.

This weekend, I'm going to be a hermit and stay in. I'll be writing non-stop and getting that word count meter bar moving.
