Writers' Roundup

July 31, 2009

I haven’t given my book enough attention this week. In between struggling with Chapter One, I’ve been working on a few freelance pieces since, well, they pay the bills and right now the book doesn’t.

I’ve got this great travel piece about Madagascar’s parks, a how-to-go-there-yourself article I began writing months ago and am finally getting around to selling. Only thing is, Madagascar’s had a political uprising since I was there before Christmas. I doubt the country is terribly unsafe, but I do believe it’s going to be difficult now to sell this piece to a magazine. Readers might be wary of visiting a country that just suffered a coup.

Anyway, I’ve been distracted this week with feeding my bank account, but I’ve still got a few links for you:

  • On her blog, Get Known Before the Book Deal (which also is the name of her book), Christina Katz explains why knowing how to write articles is important for authors.

I’ll be out of town this weekend for a family reunion. See you Monday!
