Required Rioter Reading

Thank you for pointing it out, PBW. Pat Holt's essay is wonderful--Ten Mistakes Writers Don't See. Yeah, yeah, you've read it all before. Read it again anyway.

Also from PBW-- her Top Ten Signs You've Attended Too Many Writing Workshops (the link is at her site) This is the one I liked best:

9. Conned: The writing conferences you plan to attend in one year exceeds the number of novels you've written in your life.To grow as a writer, make a rule: for every writing conference you attend, you have to write and finish at least two new novels.

Hey, if you substitute "published" for write, then I really shouldn't be in Reno anyway.


  1. good essay link!

  2. I liked it! Keep posting.. =)
