I am attempting to be more productive. (Let's see how long this lasts.)

I've started a new blog! Here's the link:

http://solunabirds.wordpress.com/

There's only one post so far, and nothing very descriptive. More to come, I guess.

Since I didn't want to bother you all too much with my nonsense, I was only going to post here if I did a writing post. But this really struck a chord with me. I'll share it.

And yet another update-last one for a few days-and now I spend sometime on revising a new story before I start figuring out how to do covers. All of that is in this post.

Not a blog...not even an update...just posting my website again, just to celebrate my 38th anniversary as a would-be writer:

www.robertnowall.com

I've only got a couple of new[er] things and I'm hanging onto them for the moment.

Nice discussion, Mary Ann.

I've had the benefit of critiques by both professionally published and unpublished authors; and I have found these to be equally helpful...and less so. I've discovered desireable resources within both groups from whom I specifically seek feedback--if and when they are willing.

I suspect this is akin to finding the "shoe" that fits me best and not whether it is a dress shoe or a sneaker. [Wink]

In making the transition from unpublished to a professionally published author in today's market, the gold ring (perhaps the "one to rule them all") would be "scoring" a critique from an editor/publisher.

I've heard very complementary things of Scott Andrews of Beneath Ceaseless Skies in this regard.

Respectfully,
Dr. Bob

Thanks History. I appreciate your thoughts on this. You've been lucky to be able to get professional feedback on your work. I'm not sure how to manage that without paying for it. [Smile] Thanks for sharing your experiences.

I hope one day to get a professional editor/publisher to look over my stuff. Hopefully that would also come with some sort of contract. Dare to dream. [Smile]
