Week In Review: January 22nd

In Case You Missed it: here’s the round up of all of my latest content, plus updates from old guests!

Read on if you want to know more.

If not? See you next week with more writing tips and writerly musings.

Coming up this week:

On Facebook’s Concellation Group: I’ll be helping hosting the text-only AMA (ask me anything) with Joe Haldeman! The author best known for The Forever War. Friday at 3pm EST.

On Youtube: As always, (since August), I have my Lazy Sunday afternoon livestream write-in from 4:30pm-6:30pm EST. Come, hang out, and we’ll probably even do a few productivity sprints.

Content Around The Web:

On Youtube:

  • If You’re Not Making Progress, Change Direction – I figured out why I wasn’t progressing the plot in my latest work-in-progress. I was trying to write the wrong type of story! In this video, I’ll be discussing what the types of stories are, and why the one I was trying to write didn’t work for this story.

On the Podcast:

  • 3 Things To Consider… Before ‘Fixing’ Your Manuscript – How Do You Please Everyone With Your Writing? Spoiler Alert: You can’t.

    In the query trenches, you see agents posting about what they don’t want and there’s this knee-jerk reaction, when I recognize a trope from my writing in their ‘no thank you’ list. The feeling of, “Oh! I can fix it! And then you’ll love it!” Especially when you see so much of your story in their ‘please send me’ list. But, before you do, listen to this episode where I discuss 3 reasons NOT to ‘fix’ your manuscript.
  • Morgan’s 2021 Resolutions – Last year was a year of querying/submitting, revisions, reading, and networking. This year? The goal is publication! Yet again, I need to refocus on what will get me there.

On The Blog (In Case You Missed Them):

Events:

None scheduled, yet. But watch out, I’m sure they’re coming.

What I’ve Been Reading:

In the aftermath of (mostly) last week’s Zoe Chant novellas binge, my books for the year sits at [29/36]. Ooops.
