Just a few things for you today. Good think because I’ve been in meetings all day. So, here we go…
- We’ll start with Kim Weiland (@KMWeiland) asking Have You Set the Right Tone for Your Story? on her WORDplay blog. Tone is something that gets established right at the beginning of a piece, whether you mean it to or not. If the tone changes along the way, it’ll leave your reader wondering what’s up. Kim offers some suggestions for how to pick the “right”–or at least best–tone for your work.
- Next up is Joe Moore (@JoeMoore_writer) on The Kill Zone writing about Conference Season and the Pitch. This, of course, has nothing to do with baseball and the All-Star Game, and everything to do with presenting the idea for your novel to an agent, in person, and a writers’ conference. There’s not a lot new here, but it’s a good review/reminder, especially of points like “don’t pitch drunk!”
- And finally, Harvey Stanbrough (@hstanbrough) waxes enthusiastic, yet again, about e-publishing, in WriterPerson, Meet ReaderPerson.
