  1. Yes, I love this! This is what I do. Someone mentioned sleeping on it (which is what I would usually see it as). It gives so much clarity. I'll have to look into 'quilting'. Thanks
  2. Thanks, Lynn! I will be checking this out.
  3. I'm starting to see things a lot more different now. I know a writer who is self-published. Was given two book deals by two small publishers but didn’t think the returns would be worth it. Yes, some people self-publish because of the above, but many because they want to have creative control over their own work, and bigger returns. It might not be such a bad thing in the long run!
  4. Congratulations! Are you worried at all, that it may have been too quick? I noted Shamrock's response here... It's sad that we have to question this but a raw reality. Thanks for sharing, guys!
  5. One thing I've learned a long the way, is planning (outlining) does speed up the writing process. I don't see planning as rigid, where things cannot be changed, but quite the opposite, it's there as a guide, so that I don't go off of a tangent somewhere. The way I see it now is, it's only the first draft. By the time I get around to editing it will look a lot different. Thanks, Johne!
  6. Thanks, for the clarification. It's a bit nerve-wracking, to say the least, since I write for the YA market myself.
  7. Thanks for the breakdown, Jeff. Very interesting, indeed. Would you explain the above for me? I guess I'm not sure what was meant by 'no contacts in the market'. The fact that she loved it is great!
  8. I don't actually think I'm either or; it depends on the situation. I enjoy my own company but can equally be the life of the party... and, I don't necessarily need quiet time to write. Friends? Who are they? . I'm joking. I'd say I have a circle of close knit friends.
  9. Thanks, Wes B. I'll do that. I deleted that comment , but thanks, I'll bare that in mind.
  10. Thanks for your view of the book, Zee. You make it sound like a good read.
  11. Thanks for this, Wes B! I'll rethink reading it; I especially like the sound of the sequel.
  12. that's quite funny. Winning the Pulitzer Prize doesn't mean everyone should know the story. I doubt I'll watch the movie either. Not saying never but I'm not jumping on the sadness train at present, if it's to do with death. Does someone die?
  13. OK. Will you publish the various genres under pseudonyms? I read something about readers getting confused and disappointed if they're used to an author writing one genre only to pick up a book and it's another.
  14. Nice! Must be cool to have a sibling into writing like you. Is the book in the same genre you write in?
