Writing can seem to have its share of hurdles, but anyone who's gotten to The End knows that the hard parts are yet to come. Beyond editing the piece to within an inch of its life, comes the really difficult bits: shopping it around, writing a blurb, a synopsis, a query letter. Waiting a min. of twelve weeks to learn if you can shop it elsewhere. And if you're self-publishing, then you need to format correctly, and get a decent cover, and blurb.
And the promoting, You want to promote your work without being that annoying person who is always saying, "buy my shit!" Howzzat work? Well, helpful websites are eager to tell you. Provide useful information. Hmm, well, I certainly help you to avoid crappy books by reading and reviewing them for you...right? Be fun, upbeat. No, failed that one. I have books in my stack of reviews to do that I really liked, and they're so much harder to write than the books I didn't. Snark comes easy to me. You'd think I could write villains just like *snap* but no, my characters get all my good humour, witty banter, and kindness.
I'm not even snarky in a useful way, like Chuck Wendig (check out his blog, btw. I want to be him when I grow up.)
So I'm asking you, my readers (all four of you), what would YOU like to see on this blog, besides more awesomely mean reviews?
Oh, and I need a picture... hang on...
