I have a passion for writers. I love them—one and all. I especially like learning how writers write, and that’s what Be A Real Writer is all about.
When I read a book anymore, I don’t read for the enjoyment. I think I lost that ability when I became a writer. It’s a rare book that makes me forget to study it, or wonder how the author went about pulling it together, how he hid clues so well that I couldn’t figure out whodunit. When I read a short story or poem—I’m curious to know where your idea came from, how many times you rewrote it or how much you concentrated on word choice or symbolism, and if you may have used the three act structure to help you lay it out.
Please keep your submissions no longer than 500 words. Make certain your submissions are error free. I won’t post without proofing first and will do light editing if I think your submission needs it. Pictures are welcome if you have rights to them. I especially want a pic of you and your title(s). Always include your bio with urls for your blog, website and where readers can purchase your books. At this time, posts will be made Monday, Wednesday and Friday. And until I gain more followers on the Be A Real Writer blog site, your post will be used on both blogs. Fair? Please: No erotica and no profanity.
On Monday, June 3rd, I will introduce you to my first guest blogger: L. Diane Wolf . We’ll learn how to put together a nonfiction book.
As I write this, all other dates are open, so let me hear from you. (And pray I stay organized! I’m a little nervous about this undertaking.)
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me: jessyferguson (at) gmail (dot) com.
