Twitter Tuesday~Agent Advice & Critiques


I caught a lot of great tweets for you last week! The wonderful and frank Audry T brings us this great post about why we should plot:

One of my favorite blogs talks about when to do research:

Agent Sarah LaPolla stresses the importance of reading our manuscripts aloud:
sarahlapolla Sarah LaPolla by julichilliard: Writers: Read your work aloud. If you trip over too many words or poorly constructed sentences, it's time to rewrite.

Agent Sarah LaPolla brings us a tip on dialogue:
sarahlapolla Sarah LaPolla by julichilliard: #writingtip If it's obvious who is speaking, you don't need dialogue tags. Narrative is much cleaner when you remove unnecessary "said."

My critique sisters and I are hosting another critique session:

Agent Vickie Motter highlights a learning opportunity:

Agent Diedre Knight stresses the importance of networking:
DeidreKnight The flip side of how small the writing/pub world is? Network like crazy b/c you never know when a relationship will develop or help. #pubtip

Writer's Digest highlights a great conference:

Agent Jill Corcoran brings us a post by Agent Rachelle Gardner on a "No" response:
