Twitter Tuesday~Agent & Editor Advice & #WritersRoad

It was a light week for writers on Twitter last week. I think everyone was still recovering from the holidays, I know I was! Here are a few great tweets I managed to catch. The first one is from Writer's Digest to an excellent reoccurring post on Chuck Samubuchino's blog about writers and what they've learned so far:
@WritersDigest 7 Things I've Learned So Far, by writer Danica Davidson: http://tinyurl.com/293wx9o

Here is a bit of advice from the editor of the up and coming publisher Egmont:
@EgmontGal Tip #1: Follow agents' guidelines to the letter, Don't write "requested ms" on envelope when submitting to pub #askYAed (itor)

The editor of Egmont shares with us the trends she is predicting:
@EgmontGal I predict we will see a resurgence of the middle grade novel AND of realistic YA--but historical fiction, not yet in 2011 #askYAed (itor)

Jennifer Laughran of the Andrea Brown Literary graciously offers an open thread on her blog that you don't want to miss!
@literaticat OK guys and dolls - it's OPEN THREAD TIME! Have a question about publishing/agenting/books/life? ASK AWAY, here: http://tinyurl.com/2br4hlt

Don't forget to join me on Twitter this Thursday at 6:00pm~7:00pm Pacific Time for the first #WritersRoad chat. We'll be discussing the journey along the writer's road. Authors Alissa Grosso (Popular debuting this May), Leah Cypess (Mistwood), Judith Graves (Under My Skin), Kristina McBride (The Tension of Opposites), Kristie Cook (Promise), and Krissi Dallas (Phantom Island: Wind) are all going to try to attend. There will also be several represented writers in attendance, possibly a few literary interns and who knows who else might drop by. Click here to join us or click on the new picture I've posted for the chat on my sidebar. Hope to see you there!
