Sophia Watson's curator insight, June 17, 2013 4:28 AM

I despised the notion of still pondering about school when you are conveniently relaxing on your mattress. Rather than fumbling through your phone, tablet, tablet accessories, game consoles, and other things, you wind up reading books, solving mathematical problems and worse, looking through dull literature. If there is just a way in order to get rid of these yet still acquire good grades.

Writing is Best When We Get Out of Our Own Way

Writing is Best When We Get Out of Our Own Way | Writing | Scoop.it

This article is a wonderful reminder to writers to get out of our own way when creating our stories.

 

The main thrust of the article is to stop editing and start writing! Yes, we should edit, but some writers edit to death and their novel never sees the light of day. Also, make sure you know what the story PROBLEM is and where it will END and how the character will CHANGE. This is vital and will keep you moving forward!

Writers are always on a journey, and their journey to getting published is only part of the process. Yes, getting a book published is the goal, but many lessons learned is what happens along the way.

10 Tips for Writers Reading in Public

Robert Chazz Chute's curator insight, June 11, 2013 11:34 PM

Randy Susan Meyers imparts great advice about doing a reading at Huffpo at the link below. Enjoy!

 

I must point out that if I wasn't in love with myself, I couldn't do a reading at all. (I do alternate between raging narcissism and self-loathing, so it balances out.)

A couple of persnickety podcasters who shall go unnamed once complained that they don't like it when an author looks like he's enjoying himself too much at the podium. If a writer got too much into acting out the reading, they shuddered with too-cool-for-schoolness.

 

This is blatant hipster posing. If the author acted miserable, said podcasters surely would have said the reading was too flat. They were a couple of poos who shouldn't go to readings if they're just there to bag on people to make themselves feel better.

 

I say a reading is a performance. People expect to be entertained. If you can't act, be funny. If you can't be funny, read something really good poorly or get someone else to read it for you and just answer questions afterward.

 

I agree with Ms. Meyers about this: Your audience doesn't care about your stagefright (unless you can make that funny, of course.)

 

Most people go to readings to meet the author, get a signed book, enjoy themselves and drink red wine in an atmosphere where no one calls you on your raging alcoholism.

 

Now get out there withyour book and kick ass.

 

Thanks to cool author (and soon-to-be-guest on the Cool People Podcast) Jessica McHugh for the tip on this link.

Bottom line on PDF Accessibility, you must avoid using image only scans in your pdf files. Be sure they are in searchable text format (which is usually the case).
