Writing a Novel: best get rich quick scheme yet. Just ask someone who's done it.

Great post yesterday by Larry Brooks at StoryFix.

Not very encouraging to those of us who would like to make some money writing books, but a good dose of reality comes in handy every once in a while.

Two kinds of people should definitely read this: 

  1. people I owe money to that think they are going to collect because I have published a book, and 
  2. people who owe money to me who think they no longer need  to pony up because I have published a book.

  1. This is time-consuming, but once you have concise summaries, you will be able to see your novel’s overall direction more easily. Sure, you can read and reread your novel itself. Getting a novel published via Algonkian

Comments are always welcome. Tell me what you like and what you don't. Information, encouragement, criticism--I don't care. A day where I don't learn something new is a day lost to me.
