When it rains, it pours. Here’s another shameless plug to check out another guest blog post–this time on Guide to Literary Agents, where I share the seven biggest, most painful and profound lessons I’ve learned while slogging through draft after draft of THE HERO.

    The point about developing a group of writing friends sounds good – I think that’s what I’m missing. To others the occupation seems an odd way to live – or worse.
    About the blog writing – a good idea too I think – though I sometimes worry that it can become a distraction or a welcome diversion. Though I value the relationships I’ve developed with other bloggers, including some writers, through my blog. That’s been very supportive and encouraging.

    Hey Lara. Just read your wonderful guest post. I like #6. I never considered taking a break from one kind of writing to do another kind. I guess because I always considered myself just a fiction guy. Except now I’m doing the bloggy thing, too. Does that count?

      Thanks for reading and commenting, Dell! And I’d say blogging counts. It’s definitely still writing–and your blog is great 🙂

    Hey Lara, just a note to say I read your guest post and left a comment on it. You inspired a post of my own and I’m making a link to you!

    Good luck with the book. I’m done revising (for now) and am querying. Waiting is hard, rejection sucks…tell me, why do we do this again?

    Hi Lara,
    great post – i have to say that I agree with just about all of your points except the socializing one – I don’t do social much. Good luck with “The Hero” and if you come across a friendly agent, please send him or her my way. I just self-published my first novel “Wolf’s Paw”, but I really, really want a proper agent.
    Cheers,
    T
