Ambition may divide self-publishing authors

Ambition may divide self-publishing authors | Litteris | Scoop.it

At least, that’s the sense I get from this piece by Porter Anderson in Publishing Perspectives looking at a minor furor that erupted in a self-publishing author association around the formation of a private forum for professional members. The association is the…

4 Reasons to Write Short Stories - The Write Practice

4 Reasons to Write Short Stories - The Write Practice | Litteris | Scoop.it

"For most of my creative writing life, I've tried to write novels. Novels are the pinnacle of fiction writing in the same way oil painting is the pinacle of art. I thought that if I were going to be a writer it meant I didn't have a choice but to write novels. However, in the last six months, my thoughts have changed."

Penelope's curator insight, April 11, 2016 9:30 PM
If you're stuck on writing the great American novel, try a short story--or two. It might spark some creativity, and that could possibly lead to actually finishing your book instead of just thinking about it!
