Exploring the Net

1.  Edie Melson, at The Write Conversation, gives the scoop on Links and how to use them effectively.

2.  Two weeks ago, I linked to Pauline Creedon's post on using blogs to promote e-books, Part 1. Here is Part 2.

3.  Wow, The Procrastiwriter nailed it for me today! I'm working on the first draft of my fourth book. Her comment about it being like an awkward teenager made me sit up and take notice.

While I love doing the first draft, I sometimes think, "this is awful," or "will this come together?" What's kept me going is past experience. It always works out if I'm diligent in the editing phase.

Writers and Readers:  Patience is an essential ingredient in writing and in life. Please share your thoughts on how patience brought you to a satisfying conclusion of a project.

I had to learn that with writing. Take my time and don't submit too soon. Not an easy feat!

I had to learn to read what I have put to the "page" with a critical eye. What I put in my NEO is my first draft, I try to correct it as I find the misspellings and improve word choices. Then I transfer my writing to the computer and format it and correct the errors I didn't catch earlier.
