I’m like a lot of writers in that I alternate between confidence in my writing and total horror at how much I blow. The low points are a total bummer–“I honestly think my writing might cause more pain than polio.”–while the high points, like when I actually get something published, are the sweetest of sweet.
I’ve been on sort of a high point lately, plowing through good chunks of my book and getting some positive feedback from all of you wonderful people in the blogosphere. During times like this I tend to fantasize about publishing and all the amazing things I’ll get to do once someone buys my book. So it’s in the spirit of this high time that I want to show you writer folk a pretty cool blog post from Marie Lamba, a writer of YA awesomeness.
The post is all about doing a blog tour–a way to get your words onto more of the internets through guest blogging and the like. Before reading this post I didn’t have a clue what a blog tour was, but Marie breaks it down like amylase breaking down starch (Yes, that was a nerdy science joke. Don’t judge me.). What’s really cool is that the instructions are based on her own experience making the thing happen, and not just something she thinks might work. Very cool.
So that’s it for tonight. I want to say, “YOU RULE!” to Kelsey for following my bloggity blog. She’s got a bunch of sweet reviews of books and pics from libraries and bookstores all over the world so you should def check her out. That’s right, go on over yonder and give that link the clickeroo.
