Links of Interest to Writers

I always take time to read a little something about writing before doing the actual writing to get the brain cells activated.

  • BookLife:  Everyone Needs an Editor by Allison Schiff @booklife
      • I've read so many books recently that could have benefited from the assistance of a good editor. Don't think you need one? That's why you need to read this article!
  • The Review Review:  How to Make the First Cut in a Writing Contest by Sara Backer 
      • I've judged a few writing contests. The advice in this article is sound. The contests I judged waited until the contest was closed before distributing the submissions, so suggestion number one didn't apply, but I would always assume the opposite when submitting to be safe.
