Thank you to all of the #writers who have already entered our #TSO short #scifi #contest. We're looking for everything. Hard. Soft. Punk. Retro. November 1 is still a way off, but we want to keep this on your radar. $3,000 and 11 total prizes await at https://t.co/RjBcnQdIO2!

We just wanted to share this one too. A narrative each and every #writer out there, regardless of how many readers they have at the moment, can instantly relate to. #writerslife #amediting

#Readers aren't looking for something specific. They're looking for something GOOD. Boxing in the creative process with layers of specificity may result in marketable products, but we'd rather have great written works. Those sell themselves by virtue of what they are.

Writer With A Name Tag@writerwithatag

Some agents on #mswl: I want a sci-fi, historical romance about a crime-fighting cat who cooks while juggling, partially deaf and vegan, whose villainous half-cousin takes over the planet. Mermaids yes. Zombies no. Must be ownvoices. Send now. Don’t write to trends.
