PubTips Round-Up

Twitter can be very time consuming  to keep up with so I give you, #PubTips Round-up.

Since I know many do not follow Twitter I thought I’d give you another round-up of the most recent writing/publishing tips mentioned. If, by chance you decide to give Twitter a go, please send me an email so we can follow one another, I’m @I_am_Writing. Remember, you don’t have to tweet, just pop in every once in a while to check in. You never know what you’ll find.

(The @ symbol and the name that follows is the person who posted the tip or aka Tweeted the tip)

@StacyAbramsEdit – If a fiction picture book is over 1,000 words, it’s way too long…Even 800+ is often cutting it close.

@meganrecords – …A grin parted her lips.” Overwriting. “She grinned” is just fine; I won’t think you are less creative

@EgmontGal – Don’t worry about sounding of-the-moment unless you are doing YA chick lit. References date so very quickly.
