Writer's Groups Help

For years, my writing friend told me that she belonged to a writer's group that consisted of Romance Writers. She encouraged me to join a group because it really helps when you critique each other and you grow as a writer. And for years, I was always busy and didn't want to make time for such a thing. Now that I have time on my hands, I have joined She Writes, like I mentioned. I honestly didn't know what I was missing. It is so comforting to talk with a group of like-minded people. They are actually going through the same stuff I am going through. We help each other out with our writing, give suggestions, critique and support. I've actually been becoming a better writer! So I encourage you to do the same if your passion is writing. Hook up with a writer's group - you'll thank me.

Queries

I joined a site called 'She Writes'. There is an incredible amount of support by other authors who give great advice and critique. It's like having your own writing group. I joined a side group for query critiques who gave me great insight and suggestions to improve my writing.

Magic by Moonlight Book Trailer

Check out this SlideShare Presentation:

TEEN DIALOGUE

Food for thought - I've been reading a lot of teen dialogue in tons of popular books in the local bookstores lately. It's been a real eye opener. Using current lingo really makes the characters come alive. Using phrases like... come on, you're kidding me, right?, unbelievable, you're pulling my chain, etc., etc., really hits home with the young kids. I'm going to revise some of my newest manuscript to include some of the lingo. I'm going to stay away from the derogatory ones like... that frigging thing and more. It's just not my style.
