Re: Novel Editors From the NYC - Manuscripts to Market

The narcissists can't be avoided! Are they primarily from Russia these days? Are they working for Putin? But don't feel so bad, Hoffman. I'll wager that I foolishly lost more than you did. Also, consider that if you attend a New York Pitch conference, you're spending nearly $3000.00 or more for that...

Re: Algonkian Novel Writing Program

Hey, RlL! You okay? I'm almost through Part II. It's a grinder but it's worth it. I just wish I'd discovered this before I blew my inheritance on a near useless MFA from U.A. btw, Michael told me that Algonkian is making more inroads with TV producers. Did you hear anything about that? Yes Lee, I a...

Re: Algonkian Novel Writing Courses - Reviews and Interviews

Hail, hail the gang's all here... or will be shortly! :wink: I was dislodged from the novel writing program for some time due to life issues, but thankfully rejoined a few weeks ago and now I'm reviewing my first four course modules of Part I. I've come up with new antagonist features that in turn a...

Re: Author Salon Mission and Discussion

The issue for me right now are the three layers that Author Salon that Mr. Neff has included in the craft section. I see the usefulness of approach, and it makes me cringe to glance at the levels of cake I have to make and bake before the Iron Chef of Publication checks off (btw, I'm trying to be wi...

Re: Author Salon Notes and Reviews by Bloggers

I'm not surprised. Put his imagination and storytelling art together with Bradbury-like prose and you've got an SF superman.

Re: Author Salon, Agent Query - Isabel and Woody

And now, let me tell you about another loser ... Did she say, 100 pages for the submission? Remove the double spaces and we're not even in novella territory.

Re: Author Salon Notes and Reviews by Bloggers

L,

I thought this was worth mentioning. I finally got to level three of the Welty-Ray narrative tier.

Does anyone know the identity of the author on level two? It looks strangely familiar.

Re: Coverage Post and Agent Query on Author Salon

I agree, it was genuinely terrible. As the article says, it feels rushed into production. Reminds me of my last novel.

Re: Coverage Post and Agent Query on Author Salon

One of my writer groups completely disintegrated after a single incident. Someone gave a good idea to a new writer for bringing out the best in her short story and another member told the same writer five seconds later that she couldn't use the idea because it wasn't her idea. This started a huge ar...
