This Writer's Wishlist

Just because we’re often lost in our own little world doesn’t mean that writers don’t want things, too!

Of course we want things!

Like pet dragons.

I’d take a never-ending supply of coffee, too!

Here are a few things that I think would make a perfect gift for any writer in your life (even if it’s you)!

Reward yourself for your most recent writing win with one of these puppies!

To the Self-Publishing Writer

So you think you want to self-publish?

Congratulations!!

Whatever brought you to this point, don’t resent it!  Even if you’re only doing this after so many rejections from traditional publishers, it’s okay. This is all part of your writing journey; and self-publishing is becoming more and more accepted and encouraged all the time.

This is all about getting your book out there, the way you want it to be!

Rewriting for Pantsers

 

A pantser is someone who doesn't outline.  You sit down to write without any outlining, barely knowing your own characters and the world they live in.

Rewriting for Plotters

It’s all well and good to know what kind of writer you are—but how does this affect your rewriting style?

This one is for you, plotters!
