AME Blog Carnival: Tips and Tricks for Writers and Authors – February 11, 2013by: Paula
Welcome to the February 11, 2013 edition of tips and tricks for writers and authors. We have some great posts on writing and self-publishing to inform and inspire. Thank you to all of the contributors!
Magical Realism appeals to readers (and writers) because it offers a worldview in which the natural, physical laws of the universe are not the only plausible explanation for events in the story (or in real life, for that matter). While the reader realizes that the rational and irrational are conflicting polarities, they are not disconcerted because the author has established the fantastical (mystical, metaphysical or supernatural) within the context of the natural or ordinary world.”
Lisa Romeo presents Writing Steps and Lists posted at Lisa Romeo Writes, saying, “I talk about how a writer can create to-do lists that go beyond listing deadlines and/or hopeful goals, and instead break the actual writing process down into specific, measurable steps.”
Nick Daws presents Don’t Be Scared of Writerly Rejection! posted at Nick Daws’ Writing Blog, saying, “In this guest post freelance writer and writing teacher Daley James Francis offers some encouraging advice about dealing with rejection, something every writer has to face at some time in their career.”
Joel D. Canfield presents Getting Your Book Out of the Someday Box posted at Someday Box, saying, “It’s a series of 16 short (3-minute) videos with accompanying text which describe the process of publishing your own book: all the steps needed, and some advice on where you’re likely to need help.”
