Sharing Writing/Publishing Tips

Two documents that I found valuable were published in the past week, so I'm sharing the URLs here if you are also interested.  

First, Storm Constantine had a wonderful article on how to get a fantasy book published.  Check it out on her blog here:

And next, there was a great post on Creating Space for your Writing that was found by Lynn Flewellen and passed on in her LJ.  Check out that link here:

Happy writing, everyone.

The best advice I can give about Nano is have a detailed outline and try write around the same time every day. After a week or two you almost get used to pushing out 1,700+ words a day.

I've since gone back and read Storm Constantine's article. I expected to roll my eyes for some reason, but that was one of the more sensible, empathetic how to's I've read on the subject. I think a lot comes down to having a good editor who'll understand what you're trying to do and takes time to explain the changes he/she decides are necessary (have heard a few horror stories there)
There are many things that can be said about Storm Constantine, but I found her article very lucid and filled with legitimate and reasonable information.

I'm determined to try NaNoWriMo. I may not succeed the first time, but it's that way with many things. You have to learn to walk before you can run. I've at least been writing for a bit now and feel more comfortable with it, and I'm working on the research and the character developments so that I can hopefully make this tale work. I guess I'll find out - LOL. Thanks for the advice, it sounds very reasonable and with luck, achievable.
