Beware The False Compliments That Are Killing Your Writing

Beware The False Compliments That Are Killing Your Writing | Litteris | Scoop.it

Time and time again on this site we tell you that it’s vital to have a close group of people around you who share your love of writing. 

 

But…you have to be careful.

 

Without meaning to, friends can actually damage your work with blind encouragement. They can kill your writing with kindness.

11 Essential Things to Know If You Want to Write Fiction for a Living

11 Essential Things to Know If You Want to Write Fiction for a Living | Litteris | Scoop.it

The Masquerade Crew outlines the long shot of making a living at writing. The point that I'd like to reinforce today is #10. No matter how good your writing may be, you still have to market to get your books out into the light where they can be read and enjoyed by hoi polloi.

I once attended a marketing seminar for chiropractors. Chirocrackers get a little shot of dopamine every time they do an adjustment. Hundreds of times a day, with each nitrogen bubble pop, it feels good for them to get that crack. But as far as marketing goes? Who wants to do that? Not many. And most think that since what they're doing is so good and helpful, they shouldn't have to do any of that dirty business stuff. Repeatedly, chiropractors say, "All I want to do is adjust. Let me get back to crackin'!" Sound familiar?

 

"All I want to do is write," we say. Mm, no. You want to be read. If it were only about writing, why bother formattting, getting a cover for your masterpiece and publishing it? You could keep your manuscript in a drawer, never put up with "business" and get all those happy dopamine bumps from writing in seclusion.

 

Marketing is essential and it doesn't matter that you don't enjoy doing it. Not many enjoy that aspect of the work. It's uncomfortable, but so what? 

 

You're a genius? Great. Do the world a favor and stop keeping it a secret.

10 (More) Amazing Videos About the Creative Process -- The Fuel Of Storytelling

10 (More) Amazing Videos About the Creative Process -- The Fuel Of Storytelling | Litteris | Scoop.it
We hand-pick the web's best videos about the creative process from some of the world's most talented creative minds.

 

I stumbled upon this the other day and couldn't wait to share it with you. And I thought Friday would be a great day so you can have a totally inspiring weekend!

 

I've watched all of these videos and they are awesome. And each one is different. Each has its own unique message/messages about creativity, art, life, and work. Fabulous!

 

These are keepers and I've added them to my 'favorites' on YouTube so I can go back and dip into them whenever I need a lift.

 

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do and take away lots of good stuff to incorporate into daily living!

Livro digital estimula novos gêneros e outro perfil de leitor

Livro digital estimula novos gêneros e outro perfil de leitor | Litteris | Scoop.it

Talvez não seja tão picante quanto "50 Tons de Cinza" ou violento como "As  Crônicas de Gelo e Fogo", mas a saga do livro digital no Brasil também reserva  uma carga de emoção para seus próximos capítulos: à medida que novos personagens  finalmente entram na história, como a Amazon, a expectativa é de mudanças também  no perfil de leitor e, consequentemente, no padrão de consumo, com a ascensão de  gêneros como ficção científica e mistério e uma maior oferta de textos como  ensaios e grandes reportagens.

Essa é a aposta de Roberto Feith, diretor-geral da Objetiva e presidente do  conselho da DLD (Distribuidora de Livros Digitais, empresa que representa as  editoras Record, Objetiva, Sextante, Rocco, Planeta, LPM, Novo Conceito e da  canadense Harlequin). "Estamos efetivamente à beira do ponto de inflexão do  consumo do livro digital no Brasil. Agora ele vai começar a representar uma  parcela significativa do mercado."

A DLD acaba de fechar acordos com a Amazon e com o Google - "a expectativa é  que estreiem antes do Natal", diz Feith. Na segunda, a Livraria Cultura deu  início das vendas do leitor Kobo. E na semana passada, a Objetiva lançou um selo  exclusivo para obras digitais.
