Friday Writing Buzz

MOOD STATUS: "Pleased." Almost done my edits. :)

NEW BEDROOM PAINT COLOR: Mercer Blue.

Well, I'm hoping to finish up my edits today. All in all--with the exception of one scene--the changes were pretty minor and very easy to do.

In-between editing (and commenting on blogs and checking e-mail and painting my bedroom) I found some cool writing links to share.

So here goes:

***Do you have an author brand?
Believe it or not, a brand is NOT the same as a tag line. Check out Theresa Meyers' article about the difference and how to establish your brand.

***Hunting for an agent?
Check out Writer's Digest and Howard G. Zaharoff's article on 5 Quick Tips for Writer/Agent Negotiations


****Do you need some writing encouragement?
Read Therese Walsh's article on "the secret" to writing success and take heart.

*****Do you have a promotion routine?
Check out Camy Tang's article about not only getting into a promo routine but also making yourself happy at the same time.


That's all for now. It's back to the editing cave for me.

Have a great weekend!

I don't know if I have a brand or not. Do I have to be published to think about it? Or should I be starting to worry about it now?
