Must pass this along...

Editor extraordinaire, Jodie Renner, has posted a very informative article on her blog regarding style. Before reading it, I would have said, "In my opinion, I feel it would behoove every aspiring writer to journey to her blog and spend some time reading the words she's written."

However, after reading it, I'm just going to say, "Here's the LINK! Go there and pay attention."

Why are you still here? Click it.

My Facebook friend, Jill Corcoran, a literary agent with The Herman Agency, hooked me up with Martha Alderson. Martha is known in the industry as "The Plot Whisperer," and she knows what she's talking about.

I'm going to keep my comments short here, and just provide a link to her instructional videos. I would highly recommend watching them. There are currently only four of them so far, but a new one should be coming up next week. Check it out HERE!

Since we last posted about the topic of sharing, let's continue in that direction. We all want to know what you've been up to. I'll begin.

1. Got an encouraging rejection from one of my favorite literary agents.
2. Followed her suggestion and did a major revision and rewrite, adding 15K words.
3. Just sent the final draft to my editor for copyediting.
4. Will resubmit to my dream agent when completed.

And that's about the size of it. Now. What about you?

Have you finished a new WIP? Have you got a request for a partial or full? Has an agent made an offer? Is your book being released soon? Share.

Also, if you'd like to "friend" me on Facebook, I'll friend you right back.
