In keeping with the A-Z theme that’s running around the blogosphere right now, today’s post begins with the letter K, which in this case stands for know the biz.
My thought is, if you want to be a writer, especially one who gets published, you should know the business you’re getting into. I think most of us come into this with the notion that we just want to write stories and then progress to wanting to see our stories in print. The problem is, if we don’t learn how to make those stories as good as they can be and find out how to get them out in the world, our chances of success are pretty slim.
When I first started writing there weren’t nearly as many resources for writers. Heck, there wasn't even the internet! These days, however, there are tons of resources, which make it easier than ever to learn the craft and business of writing.
One of my favorites is Writer’s Digest Magazine. It has been consistently helpful and fun. What are some of your favorite resources? What’s helped you know the biz?
