Read, Read, and Read Some More

So you want to be a writer. You joined a critique group, took writing classes, and attempted to sell your soul to the devil to get published. You're on the right track...well, except for the soulless part. One more suggestion...read.

So, say, just off the top of my head, you want to write YA Science Fiction and Fantasy, you have read everything you can get your hands on in the genre. You don't have to love every book, but think about what works and what doesn't. The more you read, the better your writing will be. I've read books and wondered, "How did this get published?!" then gone back through my writing to make sure I haven't made the same mistakes.

Next week (after the holiday) I'll go through the process of getting an agent, starting with queries. There's a ton of info on queries out there, but I'm going to break it down. Soon you'll grab an agent's attention and be on the road to becoming published.

  1. I am so happy, i never believe i will be this happy again in life, I was working as an air-hoster ( cabby crew ) for 3years but early this year, i loose my job because of this deadly disease called Herpes virus (HSV), I never felt sick or have any symptom, till all workers were ask to bring their doctors report, that was how i got tested and i found out that am HSV positive that make me loose my job, because it was consider as an STD and is incurable disease, i was so depress was thinking of committing suicide, till i explain to a friend of mine, who always said to me a problem share is a problem solved, that was how she directed me to Dr Isibor, that was how i contacted him and get the medication from this doctor and i got cured for real, I just went back to my work and they also carry out the test to be real sure and i was negative.
