How to Streamline Your Blog Post Publishing and Promotion Tasks | Jackie Keswick's Writer's Cave | Scoop.it
One of the best things I’ve done to streamline the publishing and promotion process is to insert a template at the bottom of my blog post drafts in Word.
Sue Marchant's insight:

I thought I was doing well with this all by myself, but I found a couple of gems in your article that I hadn't considered. The template idea is great for outsourcing... thanks for sharing!

Writing a One-page Synopsis...Yes, it CAN be done!

I'm unusual amongst my writerly friends - you see, I LIKE writing the synopsis. In fact, I typically write a synopsis after my "zero" draft to help me find the plot holes and start the revision process.

 

I know, I know - I am strange. But then, I warned you, right? What's even more strange? I like crafting SHORT synopses - ones that average 2 pages or less, no matter how long the novel.

 

Before you call the insane asylum, how about I share my tricks for writing them...trust me, follow these guidelines and you, too, may use the synopsis as a way of highlighting your story and finding the plot holes.

The 10 Best LGBT Romances in Literature

The 10 Best LGBT Romances in Literature | Jackie Keswick's Writer's Cave | Scoop.it

Since we’re always thinking about books, we’ve collected ten wonderful literary LGBT romances to get you in the mood. From aching first love to rambunctious adulthood, this list offers something for everyone, regardless of gender or sexual preference. Heartbreak — like disease, love, and death — doesn’t care if you’re hetero-normative or not. It’s just part of the rollercoaster human experience. So, break out your vinyl of Elliot Smith’s XO, and get your tissues ready — or look forward to spring flings, and revel in human sexuality.
