Yesterday was one of my days to blog at the 4RV Reading, Writing, & Art News blog. The topic of discussion: developing a self-editing process. I also shared my editing process to spark your ideas and provided resources to consider.

I hinted at an exciting announcement on my Facebook page last week. I’m now happy to announce that I recently became an acquisitions editor intern for 4RV Publishing. I’m thrilled to join a superb team and look forward to working with other writers in this capacity.

This month, I began contributing to the 4RV Publishing blog. The 4RV Reading, Writing & Art News is geared toward writers and artists. It has a lot of helpful hints I’ve used over the years. I’ll be blogging every second and fourth Wednesday.
On May 9, my article “Understanding How Book Reviews Make You A Better Writer” appeared. You can find it here. Today’s article includes tips to balance writing time and marketing time. You can find it here.
If there are topics you would like to see me address in my bi-monthly posts, please feel free to share them in the comments.
In case you forgot, STORYSTORM, founded by Tara Lazar is taking place this month. If you’ve never participated in STORYSTORM, I encourage you to consider it for next year. As I’ve said before, it’s been responsible for two of my published books and I also have several others in various stages of editing and one manuscript I’m going to pitch to an agent this year.
We are 21 days into STORYSTORM and I am excited to say I have 21 ideas listed on my spreadsheet. We are in the home stretch now. I can feel victory on my horizon.
Are you participating in STORYSTORM? How are you doing?
