If you’re an aspiring writer, a good literary manager is often a vital ingredient for your success and continuing career. They’re with you on every step of your journey. They give you notes on your projects, help you strategize and prioritize, keep you motivated, and get you in front of execs, producers, and other players to get that next job. It’s a crucial and ongoing relationship that can make or break your career. The manager/client relationship is an intimate and important one that should be based on trust and communication, as well as on personalities. Because of this, it’s worth taking the time to think about what kind of working relationship you want to have with your rep.

Be A Bestseller Masterclass series wsg @SylviaHubbard1 – Structure Your Story for Success #motownwriters #michiganwriters #michlit #writingcommunity

https://masterclass.beabestseller.net/SylviaHubbard

Why not sign up for the Be A Bestseller – Structure Your Story for Success masterclass series?

My friend, Emma Dhesi, has brought together 20+ writers, creatives, and influencers for this complimentary training series on ways to structure your stories, develop plot twists and manage your projects, rejuvenating both your writing and your energy.

And you can access it all by clicking here: https://masterclass.beabestseller.net/SylviaHubbard

Is it possible to write your book in only a few writing sessions a week?

Absolutely.

But is it as easy as some people make it sound?

Definitely not.

And it’s downright impossible if you never get started.

Do you marvel at how published writers plot and put together such wonderful stories? Whether it be literary, psychological thriller, epic fantasy, Western romance and everything in between?

Do you admire how they bring their stories full circle, connect all the dots and leave readers wanting more, and you how they did it?

Believe me, they didn’t do it alone. Crafting a novel takes time, and it takes support – sometimes a lot of it.

And that’s why I’m so excited for the Be A Bestseller – Structure Your Story For Success masterclass. It’s a gathering of writers who know the challenges you’re facing in your work. 

Writers who’ve taken time to understand how best to create writing rituals, use a story structure that works for them, and build a community. Authors who use new ways to find fans and keep them engaged.

This two-week summit lets you in on their strategies and tips, insights you won’t find anywhere else on how to revise, world build and put together a query letter that rocks!

It’s totally free, but you have to sign up to get access.

Claim your spot here: https://masterclass.beabestseller.net/SylviaHubbard

Happy Writing!

Article: How Building Your Self-Awareness Makes You a Better Writer #motownwriters

https://elizabethspanncraig.com/blog

by Kristina Adams , @writingcookbook

Self-awareness helps us to recognise our positives and negatives without being harsh or judgmental. We know things are what they are, and we know that if we dislike something, it’s completely within our power to change it.

It can help us deal with stress, anxiety, depression, and even physical health conditions like fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. (I know this as a sufferer of all of the above for many years).

Some people are naturally more self-aware than others, but, like everything in life, it’s a skill that can be learned.

Sometimes self-awareness comes from trauma, counselling, or a treatment programme for a health condition. Occasionally it comes from a desperate need to improve ourselves.

But one important thing to remember is that you can’t think your way into becoming more self-aware. Reading tips on how to do it is a good starting point, but it’s the actions you take that will build your self-awareness.

Now, how does this all tie into writing?

Well, let’s take a look at how self-awareness makes you a better writer:

Article: What Authors Need to Understand about Different Book Publishing Options #motownwriters

As authors, we’re really fortunate when it comes to getting our books out there because we have more book publishing options than ever. That’s the good news. The bad news is, not all of those options are good.

A few years ago, I wrote a post on how the wrong book publishing options (or publisher) can kill your success, but it’s worth revisiting again. Because now, more than ever, there are so many ways for authors to get their books in print.

What Authors Need to Understand about Different Book Publishing Options

February 16, 2021 by Penny Sansevieri 1 CommentReading Time: 6 minutes

As authors, we’re really fortunate when it comes to getting our books out there because we have more book publishing options than ever. That’s the good news. The bad news is, not all of those options are good.

A few years ago, I wrote a post on how the wrong book publishing options (or publisher) can kill your success, but it’s worth revisiting again. Because now, more than ever, there are so many ways for authors to get their books in print.

The issue is that once you’ve finished your book, you really just want to turn over the actual production of the book to someone else. I get it. I’ve published 18 books and I still know nothing about typesetting a book or the design elements that go into creating a stunning cover. I’d love to just hand that over to someone else.

But the truth is, your choices about *who* you publish with will impact your success – and not always for the best.

Types of Book Publishing Options and Publishers

There are a lot of different “types” of publishers out there, some big (think: Simon & Schuster) and some smaller, or “boutique” as they’re often referred to. Other publishers that are what’s called “hybrid” add another complexity to the mix.

So let’s explore some of these publishers and the options they might present to you and your book. We’ll start with the hybrid model because there’s a lot of confusion there. And with good reason. There’s no hard and fast outline about *what* exactly a hybrid publisher is.

Indie Monday

Donald Levin's Blog

This week’s guest: Rick Bailey

This week on Indie Monday, I’m proud to host Rick Bailey, author, educator, essayist, and world traveler. Rick grew up in Freeland, Michigan, on the banks of the Tittabawassee River. He taught writing for 38 years at Henry Ford College in the Detroit area. While writing textbooks for McGraw-Hill, he also wrote with classes he taught, a work habit that eventually led to Tittabawassee Road, a blog of essays on family, food, travel, and currrent events. His blog became the basis for American English, Italian Chocolate: Small Subjects of Great Importance (University of Nebraska Press, 2017). A Midwesterner long married to an Italian immigrant, in retirement he and his wife divide their time between Michigan and the Republic of San Marino. His second book is the memoir/travelogue The Enjoy Agenda at Home and Abroad (University of Nebraska Press, 2019).

This week, Rick will…
