Great Stuff on the Writers’ Blogs, June 7, 2012

Getting a late start today as I prepare for a business trip (which may mean light or no posts the next few days). Off we go, then…

  • It takes Juliet Marillier a little while to get to her three suggestions on what not to do when Writing in Miniature (that is, when writing short stories) on Writer Unboxed, but the destination makes the trip worthwhile.
  • Moving a step forward from the writing to contacts with agents and editors, Jane Friedman (@janefriedman) offers suggestions for How to Influence Editors in a Way That 90% of Other Writers Don’t on Rachelle Gardner’s (@rachellegardner) blog. Ninety percent? Even if that’s exaggeration for effect–which I don’t know that it is–wow! And the tips are so easy.
  • And finally, speaking of critiques, thanks to a brave but anonymous author, The Kill Zone’s first page critique service continues, with Jordan Dane (@jordandane) leading the way, on The Year of the SSSSSnake.

So, what great stuff have you found?
