Ever so slowly, the temperatures dip along with our daylight hours and we welcome the season's change. It’s tempting to toss our writing goals aside with the starting of school (whether it be for our children or grandchildren—or even ourselves) and holiday season just around the corner.
Tempting—yes, but not for the publishing industry. Fall is when agents and editors are coming back from vacations and tackling projects with gusto. While most authors are sitting back with a steaming mug of cocoa, the industry is gearing up for their end of the year mad dash. Just like authors are ranked by their book sales, agencies are ranked by their book deals.
To help, I’m kicking off Word Crush Wednesday and Monday Madness. Every Wednesday I’ll give a set amount time with a word count goal while every Monday we’ll do the reverse—instead of writing, we’ll be editing.
Join in via Facebook or right here with your own set time and goal. Together, we’ll finish (and polish) your manuscript.
