Once again, it's the first Tuesday of the month, meaning it's Ask the Editor Free-For-All Time!
Winter is over. Spring has sprung, and it's almost summer. Wise gardeners have cultivated their soil. Their reward is previously dormant grass and flowers have sprung to life.
What about your manuscript? Has it grown or does it remain dormant, tucked away until you can get to it, or maybe until you can figure out how to pull a few weeds or add fertilizer to get your story moving?
Our gardeners a/k/a editors will assist you by offering manuscript growing tips. Ask us and you may receive just the right formula to produce a prize winning masterpiece.
We're here to answer your questions, be they from novices or seasoned writers. No question is too dumb to ask. If we can't provide an answer, we'll offer a suggestion about where to find it. It's our goal to help you grow your manuscript to its potential.
How Ask the Editor Free-For-All Works:
Today, and every first Tuesday of the month, The Blood-Red Pencil sponsors our Ask the Editor Free-For-All. I send e-mail blasts to e-groups, Facebook, other social networks, blogs, everywhere I can think of, inviting writers to ask questions.Our editors will answer, providing valuable tips on writing basics, manuscript submission to publishers or agents, self-publishing, and more.
To Submit A Question, Follow These Easy Steps:
Leave a comment below in the comment section. Include your name and blog URL or website, not only for promo, but also so we know you're a person and not a robot. (One link only, please!) Double check to make sure your comment actually got added before you leave, since sometimes Blogger tests people to make sure they're real. You may be required to repeat a step to make your comment stick.
Our editors will stop by off and on today to answer questions in the comment section. If the answer to a question could be expanded, one of our Editors might choose to do a blog post on that topic. In that case, you could get extra promotion, along with the possibility of forwarding jpegs of your profile photo and cover, as well as a buy link.
It's not required, but it's helpful if you leave an e-mail address with your comment. Also, it would be a nice gesture, but it's not mandatory, if you'd let us know where you've heard about our Ask the Editor Free-For-All.
Others will be asking questions, so it's a good idea to check back later to see what might show up. Some of our participants use e-group Digests, which delays their email notifications, so their questions and the answers might carry over through Wednesday or Thursday.
The comment section is open for questions. Come on over and get your manuscript growing!
