I’m almost ready to start on my three-book-drafts marathon. Hoping the fates are with me, I’ve taken it as a good sign that the energies coming into my life are about moving the expressive voice out from the artist to the public.
Rachel Gardner, a literary agent I’m following on Twitter, tweeted a link to an article by Daniel Menaker in BN Review, with the comment, “A long but incredibly important article to help you understand publishing reality.”
Menaker’s article, Redactor Agonistes, is brilliantly structured and written, clear and knowledgeable. Even if you’re not interested in understanding the publishing industry, if you’re into writing, you’ll get joy from its excellence.
