"My main writing goal for 2011 is to get a novel or two edited and out to beta readers. I've yet to get that far but really want to get closer to sending out to agents. Aside from that I'll probably start another first draft and finish…"
"Wish I'd seen the threads on NaNo here earlier. That's what I get for not getting on the web site very often right now. This year I'm not writing YA, instead going for epic fantasy. After 13 days I have 50,055 words. I was trying to…"
"I would agree that taking part in different blogfests does help in followers and comments (on blogfest entries) but it doesn't always guarantee comments on other posts. And blogfests are a time commitment since you should try to read and…"
"Depends on the issue. Sometimes I'm overwhelmed and need a mini break, so I'll take one. Sometimes, I'm working on the wrong story so I'll switch my focus. Or I will listen to the podcast, I Should Be Writing, for a few episodes,…"
"Thanks for the comment. I haven't been checking here much but I have tweaked the pitch a bit for my first query attempt.

"I think like most it depends on the reader. My best friend in high school was a girl who was part blind, she had to listen to books on tape or find them in brail. She used to listen to Stephen King books all the time. She loved the horror ones. I…"
"I have a pitch line now, thanks to a logline/hook blogfest that I took part in. I'll only post the YA one since most the others are for adult books. This one is for the book I'm currently rewriting called Tattle Tell.
Ephram has been a…"
"This is a great idea! I don't have any lines to pitch yet because I have nothing close to being pitch ready but I might try and write some soon.
Your line is great, the very first one in the post introduction. Definitely shows the tension and…"
