“’I’m writing a first draft and reminding myself that I’m simply shoveling sand into a box so that later I can build castles.” -Shannon Hale
When I saw this quote late last year, I didn’t realize just how much it would affect my writing from that day forward. It has, however, now become the mantra I chant when I barrel through 5,000-10,000 words a day. That simple sentence changed the way I write… and I’d like to think it’s for the better.
WisRWA is pleased to announce the finalists for the 2018 Fabulous Five Contest.
Congratulations to all!
It’s Promotion Thursday for March. Check out where you can find our WisRWA authors this month.
Before sending their manuscript out into the world, some writers choose to have their work reviewed by a freelance editor. There are several advantages to having an editor join you in the revision process.
Whether you plan on self publishing, pursuing a traditional publisher, or seeking to find an agent, hiring an editor to polish your story is a powerful tool to help present yourself in a professional manner.
On Saturday, February 10th, Karissa Zastrow spoke to the Chippewa Falls area group about using social media to promote their careers. The event was well attended by the area group as well as the public. It was held in the community room at Volume One in Eau Claire, a wonderful local book store that also sells a variety of products from the area.
Karissa’s emphasis was on quality over quantity. Pick two or three that best suit your writing and do them well. With this in mind, she concentrated her presentation on perhaps the three most popular social media sites: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. She started with a basic overview on how to use each site and then offered tips on how to be professional; tips that apply themselves to all responsible social media use.
Each month, WisRWA will announce the new books our members have published. We call it New Release Tuesday.
