This will be brief today. I first got wind of a new disturbing trend in publishing through Dave Farland's "Daily Kick." But it's been reported here, as well (along with several other places, I'm sure). If you have an agent, or are seeking an agent, you ought to be aware of this.
Second, I'm not sure how many of you are aware of Litopia, but I've decided to join this oldest of online writer's communities. This doesn't mean I will be leaving ANWA or LDStorymakers or even my own critique group, Writeminded (though we have taken a summer hiatus). It only means I've taken Susan Haws' challenge of yesterday to heart. I'm upping my dedication to my craft and I think Litopia will help me hone that craft and get it ready for publication in a national market. I hope I'm right.
Now, what are you doing about Susan's challenge?
