Moe Ferrara Is In Need Of Coffee
Katie Bailey @EmmaCarelli@inthesestones After this crazy month (fyi, NEVER WORK RETAIL DURING THE HOLIDAYS), hearing that means a lot. Thank you for saying that. <3
It’s true though! Not everyone is cut out for writing 1600 words a day, every day. Some are.
Publishing is all about following your individual path — and that begins when you’re drafting your first draft. #writetip #pubtip
Caitlin Fa La La La La LaRue @CaitlinLaRueCan we start a thread with #authorstats cuz real life is not write a book get a deal
-how long you’ve been writing
-how long it took to get agent
-how long it took to get 1st deal
-how many ms’s did you write before 1st deal
-which # ms was your first deal?
Every querying author should be checking out #authorstats. Those stories of agent on the first book and it sold a month later are outliers. Publishing is a long game. And always remember: your journey is your own. EVERYONE is different #pubtip
Delilah S. Dawson @DelilahSDawson9. BUT! And this is an important BUT. Know that you are not expected to agree with your editor's requests 100%. She knows you're not a robot. Your job is to critically consider what will strengthen the book and make sure she's happy. And don't be a jerk/diva about it.
Whenever my clients get an edit letter, no matter if it’s their first book our fourth have this reminder at the very start of it. I’m not here to turn a book into something it’s not. #pubtip
jennifer laughran @literaticatI just got an offer for something that I sent to the editor in September 2015. It might come out in 2019. Publishing: NOT for the impatient!
So. True. The road to publication is not a race. (Says the impatient person here.) Always remember this guys. #pubtip
