Oh! The writer in us all! Whew. I wipe the sweat off my brow and dust my typing fingers because I’m about to tackle a topic that we all tenderly covet and at times despise for the lack of it.
- A few good, excellent, sleep deprived, chocolate (possibly Pull and Peel Twizzler) loving writers bound by love for the PB, MG, and YA novel who possess a devotion to perfection and learning all there is to know of the publishing industry. Acquiring skill is key here people!
- Must know perfect balance between rules and schedule vs no schedule. Please look up slacker, laid back, dilly-dally for examples of what not to lean towards while on the job. Please peruse words/descriptions of over achiever, perfectionist, detail oriented/thorough, exceptional word monger to the extent of gaiety, wit beyond that of a sly fox, highly motivated, proactive, murderer of weak words and bad grammar, positive and passionate but with head still on shoulders.
- Soliloquy is not welcome during critique! Spit it out already! Opinions are absolutely imperative to survival or writer will self destruct within so few words. I would say seconds…but it just wouldn’t do the writer justice.
