Adding congrats to all the finalists.  As a newbie SWP writer, it's very impressive to see other authors getting this wonderful recognition!

Ditto, Mary. Congratulations to all five as well as everybody who had the courage to enter.

CONGRATULATIONS to Gold Medalist Nan Gefen and Silver Medalist Judith Newton in the Foreword Reviews Book of the Year contest, just announced in Vegas! SWP had five finalists altogether and if I had to "lose" I am glad it was to a fellow SWP writer!

Hey all, I'm aware that writers aren't often great at creating their own websites. They often have no idea where to start! So I wanted to share this resource. It's not inexpensive, but a really good class on how to build your own website using Wordpress:

I've taken it and it's easy to follow.

Take good care!

Anybody looking to become a better self-editor?

Those of you in the midst of the arduous process of editing your most recent project and feeling a little overwhelmed or lost should check out this Self-Editing course I am teaching through WOW! Women on Writing.

It begins February 24, and spots are still available! http://www.wow-womenonwriting.com/classroom/DeniseLong_TipsToolsSel...

Do you accept works to read here that are unpublished?

Comment by sara selznick on November 19, 2013 at 5:36pm

Hey, Deborah, can you post this also on V. 2.0? I know they'd love to read it. 

Well, I have long chapters, organized by theme, but shorter sections within them. And there you go. 

Comment by Alonna Shaw on November 19, 2013 at 12:47pm

Debrorah J. Brasket, thanks for the interesting article suggestion. I agree, breaking up long chapters can be a pace saver.

Comment by Deborah J. Brasket on November 19, 2013 at 11:22am

I found this interesting article today about what literary writers can learn from commercial fiction.  Worth a read.  I liked especially his point about every good story being a mystery--not a who-done-it necessarily, but creating a situation in which the reader is compelled to keep reading to find out what happens next, or what it's all about, or where it is all leading.  The point about shorter chapters is well worth noting too.
