Taking the World by Storm: More Guest Posts! (And a Question About RLD Critiques)

Cartoon me, part deux
Today I'm hanging with the awesome gals at Writers in the Storm. They've been running a series the last week on being your own developmental editor and I just happened to have a fun post on being your own book doctor to add to it. So if you've been looking for new ways to edit and develop your novel, go check this series out. 


This one is part of the SCBWI Southern Breeze WiK13 Conference Blog Tour (that's a mouthful, and more on this Saturday) . I'm presenting a workshop this year, and Southern Breeze members have been interviewing presenters the last few weeks. So this one is more about writing.

I also wanted to say thanks to everyone for being patient the last month while I've been under deadline. Monday will have a new post and it should get back to my normal post schedule after that. Real Life Diagnostics will resume on September 14.

With that thought...

What do you guys think of a week of RLD? I'm debating doing a big push to clear the queue for all the nice folks who have been patiently waiting, but is that too many critiques for a week?

  1. I love the RLD, go for it. I learn more from them than from articles that are just theoretical with an example here or there.

  3. RLDs are so informative. A week of them would be great.

  4. I concur! A week of RLD posts would be a treat! You 'boil down' the writing samples so competently (with vivid and helpful examples--as Leslie said above), we all learn valuable lessons about editing our own WIPs. And we love you for it :)

  5. Whether I get to comment or just lurk, I always gain something from RLD so I say go for it :-)

  6. I find them very instructive, too, so I vote go ahead. Thanks. :)

  7. That would be AWESOME!! I agree with everyone else, but I also love reading snatches of other people's stories and wondering (hoping) if I'll see them in Chapters one day.

  8. That makes it easy :) Lots to read, but it'll feel good to finally get the poor submitters their feedback! I feel so guilty making them wait.
