Monthly Emails Full of Writerly Fun
The Revise & Resub editors have made their picks. There were so many amazing stories submitted, and it was nothing short of heartbreaking to choose one. The good news? We do this for a living, and even if your story wasn't selected, you can still hire us! I saw a ton of brilliant stories I would be absolutely honored to work with, and I loved getting to know you all through our Twitter discussions. I feel like we've formed a little #RevPit family, and to that end, you deserve the family discount.

If you are subscribed to my YouTube channel, you've probably seen this series. But for all my lovely blog followers who might not have, I thought I would collect all the videos on one page. This Editing Basics series is an overview of the editing process. It's not an in-depth look at how to edit; it's meant to lay out the basic phases of the editing process for those who aren't sure where to start or what direction to take. If you're new to editing, take a moment to go through these videos—they're brief—and get an idea of how to structure the process. Not only will this simplify your editing process, it'll help you feel more confident going in! Sometimes that can make all the difference.
Everyone is looking for ways to grow their social media followings and maximize their time. Especially writers. Every second we spend dealing with social media is time away from what’s really important—our work.
Whether we’re trying to network, sell books, share expertise, or simply connect with other writers and readers, many fiction writers turn to blogging. It’s a natural move. We write—it’s what we do. (Anyone else read that in the GEICO voice?) But fiction writers face an unexpected challenge when it comes to blogging: writing in our own voice.
I have twenty-five thousand Twitter followers. Thousand. I can't even comprehend that. I'm trying to imaging twenty-five thousand people. Twenty-five thousand real, breathing, listening, reading people.
While I understand that every single one of those people are not reading my tweets—many are even spam accounts—that is a whole bunch of people who are. And that is truly amazing to me.
