A quick little article that gives some great advice on how to go from your first draft to something worth a line edit.
Here is a Wonderful piece done by Book Country Blog about Literary Agent Mary C. Moore. Mary is on the short list of agents I have researched and plan on querying once I finish my edits. I read a lot of theses interviews but this particular one answered a lot of the questions I’ve personally had, as well as questions I’ve often heard from other writers.
I LOVE the last answer “Write purdy”

Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day for January 27, 2015 http://www.merriam-webster.com/word-of-the-day/2015/01/27
I am seriously considering attending this conference. The only hiccup is that I have already made plans to attend the ConCarolinas SciFi convention in May. Alas, I only have so many babysitting favors to call in and only so much money to spend on these endeavors. Yet I still find myself drooling over another learning opportunity of this caliber, especially when it’s in my own town. Maybe I’ll see if they offer scholarships. Hey, ya never know. I may just see you there.
I’m going to start randomly posting Webster’s word of the day. We should never stop learning.
Okay, so I finally made it to my hotel late last night and after a quick trip to the bar to settle my nerves I got a good nights sleep. I cannot tell everyone how excited I am to be attending an actual conference after the past few years of attempts to go and having things fall through.
I have already hung out with a lovely publisher at breakfast, and attending my first class. I think I’ve succeeded in the Business Causal outfit, and I have all my business cards ready to hand out at the first request. I am currently between sessions and just wanted to give a quick update.
Everyone here has be super nice and welcoming. I will say that it is mostly “mature” people but I’m not judging. I’ll talk to anyone who will listen. I have realized the toughest part is choosing which session you will attend and which ones you’ll have to skip. Ugh! I want to go to them all.
I’ll post more tonight with actual helpful info. But here’s my outfit to tide you over till then.
