So...Michelle!!!!! You have won a copy of
Writing Romance—The Ultimate Guide on Craft, Creation and Industry Connections
So here are some writing tips straight from the Pens:
1. Write. This one sounds simple but sometimes it isn't. Don't say you want to write. DO IT!! Put your butt in the chair, hands on the keyboard and type away madly. BIC HOK TAM
2. Celebrate. Every single milestone that comes your way. Finish a chapter, yay! Finish a draft, yay!! Final in a writing contest, yay! Get a good critique, yay! Sent out to an agent/editor, yay! Got a rejection, yay!
3. Submit. We've met people terrified to submit their work. What if no one likes it? Well what if they LOVE it? Use the internet tools to find agents/editors interested in what you write (www.querytracker.net) and SUBMIT.
And last but not least: we wish all of you GOOD LUCK on your publishing journey!!!!
Love, The Pens
