Thursday – Writing Tips Day

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

   Today is a tip on what to do when you have finished your writing. This is for those of you who are interested in getting a publisher or agent.

  Check out the Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook. It lists all agents and publishers, tells you what genres they’re looking for, who to contact and how they like to receive submissions. Some like a query letter first, many like query letter with one page synopsis and first three chapters. Check before you send!

   Check the agent/pubisher’s website to make sure you’re sending the manuscript how they want it.

 

   Don’t use paperclips or staples. Make sure your manuscript is double spaced with a title page.

 

   Search the internet for how to write a submission letter and synopsis to get tips on how to make them the most professional. If you don’t seem professional from your letter, they aren’t likely to read the first few chapters of your book. Lots of people have been through this anguish. Take their knowledge with open arms.

   Before you send your manuscript off, think about hiring an editor to look at your work. Agents and publishers receive hundreds of submissions. Make sure yours is the best it can be.

 

   Happy Thursday and happy writing! Liane x

Wednesday – Help Yourself Day

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

   Wednesday can be a tricky day for some of us. It’s halfway to the weekend and sometimes not close enough. If you look at Teal or Malcolm in THE CHRONICLES OF JOYA, they’re always happy and having fun. Every day to them is a great day.

 

   Spend today believing it’s Friday or Saturday or whatever your favourite day is. Feel how different you feel. Notice how much more you smile, how much easier it is to do things.

 

   Happy Wednesday! Liane x

Tuesday – Creative Flow and Ideas Day

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

 

   Hey, guys. Freddie’s in the house. Ready to get some creative juices flowing?

 

   You pour some muesli into a bowl. You add the milk and grab a spoon. You sit down, lift the spoon and stop. The muesli begins to hiss. You lower your head to listen. A piece of dried banana jumps up and smacks you in the eye. A sultana explodes midair.

 

   What happens next? Over to you, guys. Happy Tuesday! Freddie xx
