Happy Tuesday

May 26, 2009

I hope you all had as much fun this weekend as I did.

The teenaged writer I’m coaching told me he was thinking about self-publishing his short stories. I told him that the next step is not so much publishing a collection as it is submitting his best stories to genre magazines. I said that real-world feedback is important to his development as an author.

Or, really, into an author. I realized that I give this kid pretty good advice, and I should follow it myself.
