Written on the internet
- Our weekly roundup of links we hope you’ll find interesting and useful:
- Your Editors, along with publishing professional Colleen Lindsay, are conducting a workshop on Using Social Media And Digital Tools to Build a Platform, Connect with Readers, and Grow Your Community Online on Wednesday, October 26 for the Pacific Northwest Writers Association. If you’re a member, we hope to see you there!
- And in that spirit, here are two posts on platform from agent Rachelle Gardner: What is a platform, and the importance of the numbers.
- Novelist and screenwriter Chuck Wendig has 25 questions you must ask yourself as you write.
- Darcy Pattison has tips on dialogue and exposition.
- Two posts from author Kris Rusch: the first looks at the choices writers need to make (and we’re staying tuned for her follow-up analysis next week); the second considers the pros and cons of traditional and self-publishing (along with a magnificent rant on respect). Hat tip to Jill Shultz for this one!
- Writers, point your beta readers to author Bryan Thomas Schmidt’s tips on how to be a good beta reader.
- This one is for every writer: screenwriter Corey Mandell’s tips on how to make yourself miserable.

Enjoy your weekend. Write something wonderful!
