Whoa, we’re running out of awesomeness this month! Just too much going on. I’ve already decided against NaNoWriMo, but I hope a few of you out there on the internetz are still considering it. Here are 5 Links for ya!
1. Let’s begin with a post from Rachel Thompson at Bad Redhead Media that is a few years old, but still worth a read. How Do You Build An Audience Before You Have A Product? is great for anyone who is preparing to self-publish or who hasn’t signed a deal with a traditional publisher quite yet.
2. It’s so important to get feedback and honest critique of your work as you work on your revisions. Accepting Feedback is not always easy, however. Kate Coe has a good article on the topic at Almond Press.
3. I like stats, but who doesn’t, right? Here’s a post from Darcy Pattison at Fiction Notes taking a look at the Top Children’s Literary Agents 2016-2017: Picture Books, Middle Grade and YA, including some interesting sales trends.
4. Hey, like I said, I hope some of you are planning on NaNoWriMo. And if you are, here Three Ways to Plot Your NaNoWriMo Novel by Karen Hertzberg at Grammarly. Take that advice and write yourself to victory.
5. And while on the topic of NaNoWriMo, here are some NaNoWriMo 2016 Printables from Haley at Whatever Bright Things.
This is it. We’re in the final quarter of 2016. Don’t waste it. Set some year-end writing goals and get to work! Thanks for reading and be back in few.
