Twitter Tuesday~WriteOnCon, Websites & Agents

I've been crazy busy this week working on completely the rough draft of my manuscript so I didn't have much of a chance to get on Twitter, or any of my other social networks. I missed you guys! For those who aren't on Twitter or Facebook, or Scribblerati, I had a bit of good news yesterday. Nephele Tempest asked for my full manuscript for The Secret Of Spruce Knoll! I'm really excited because she is beyond awesome. Back to business though! Here are a few of the links I managed to catch.

WriteOnCon is an amazing writers' conference for young adult and middle grade writers that started this year. It is completely on line and the first conference was completely free. If you missed it I'm so sorry because it was beyond amazing. The great news is, they're gearing up to do it again! Check out the announcement here:
@Casey_McCormick A WriteOnCon announcement! http://bit.ly/ck1nhp #writeoncon

If you're like me you've had moments where you wish literary agents would be more specific as to what they are looking for. After reading this link you'll understand why some of them are more vague and gain a new appreciation for them!
@RachelleGardner If you wonder why agents don't give more specific info on what they're looking for, read this! http://bit.ly/aaUQRs

As an aspiring author I've often wondered if I should hire someone to design my website or if I should do it on my own. This post helped me answer that question:
@JaneFriedman Should you hire someone to design your website? Why I think you should save your $$: http://bit.ly/da7NVx

How was your week? Were you all as busy as I was? If not drop me a comment with any of the great links I might have missed!

  3. Definitely congrats on the full request! You know I'm in your corner...and I know they will love it. Busy? Oh... I'm not sure when I haven't been. Flying hat tossed for a month, and my writing hat shifted to my blog while I babysit. Oh... I forgot the challenges with the little ones. He's teething... poor little guy. My hat is off to all the mothers who write. Hang in there Mom's! And congratulations Heather!
