Still Learning

In these entries on The Writing Life, I’ve been explaining a number of lessons about publishing. I freely admit that I don’t have every situation figured out and I’m still learning a great deal in the process. For the growing writer and editor, this process will never end and seems as natural as breathing to me.

Recently I heard Davis Bunn talk about writing a novel with bestselling author Janette Oke. He mentioned Janette continues to read how-to books about the craft of novel writing. Davis also mentioned his ongoing efforts to grow in his craft of fiction.

In the next few days, I’ll be hard pressed to add any entries. I’m headed to an intense conference in Chicago tomorrow. On Thursday I go on to Dayton, Ohio and the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop. I’m looking forward to teaching two sessions about Book Proposals That Sell.

If I find a spare moment or two, I’ll see if I can write something—but I make no promises because of the pure intensity of the schedule.

Have a great trip, Terry. I've been using articles on your Write-Righting sight and my notes from a Maass seminar to construct a strong query letter. Thank you so much for article by Kelly James-Enger.

Enjoy Dayton, Terry. Thank you for mentioning the Erma Bombeck Writer's Conference. I didn't know about it until your post. I'll have to look into it for next year.
