I m checking out for a while. Embarking on a new project…I m writing a book.
This is all new for me…focusing on getting the interviews I need to get…taking the time to tell the stories I want to tell…and concentrating on a full time job and family member with some health issues this forum, while a welcome distraction…is one of three or four things I can walk away from.
Weather you are one with whom I have agreed or disagreed…I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, and a Blessed and Prosperous New Year. I ask you all to pray for the future of this great nation.
God Bless Each and Everyone of You!
(And please wish me luck wading into very uncharted waters for me!)
Best of luck on the book project. Been in that field, and I would recommend the blog Writer Beware https://accrispin.blogspot.com May be the best site for keeping up with the scams and pitfalls, especially ones that lure new writers. When it comes time to hunt for an agent, check out the site AgentQuery https://www.agentquery.com It helps to match your category with agents that represent it - not all agents rep all categories, so you want to be sure to match. Publishing is a very fluid industry - Publisher’s Marketplace is a good site for up-to-date news and deals. There is a Lunch Deluxe paid option, but a lot of the info is available for free.
And of my few basic rules for writers, the #1 is There is no such thing as writers’ block.
