There are things I’d love to say about authors behaving badly. Or perhaps, more accurately, cluelessly. (General note: coercing or buying reviews, never a good idea. And the Internet has a very, very long memory. And avoiding the negative implications of something by going on the attack doesn’t make others forget like you wish it would.)
Anyway. I don’t feel like being the ethics or morality police today. Live by the sword, die by the sword and all that…
What I can say is that I really, really wish companies offering publicity or editing services to writers would check the spelling on their posts before making a post offering said services on a writers’ forum.
You know what I’m talking about, right? “We meet all you’re editing needs!”
Well, no, I don’t think you do. Because I need someone who knows their your from their you’re…
Oh well. At least it makes it easy to know whose services I don’t need to pay for, right?
Now to turn my attention to the two novels I want to write in the next month. Hmm…Wonder how that’s going to turn out?
Minor digression here. I’ve been in a productivity slump lately. I pubbed six non-fiction titles this month and then just sort of coasted to a slow pace after. But this is what I told myself: I’m not allowed to quit or give up on full-time writing until I hit 1,000,000 words written and 100 titles published.
I have 152,000 words and thirty-five titles to go. Hoping to hit the word count goal by the end of June before I leave for a writing conference. If I stay on this novel plan, I don’t know when I’ll hit the title goal. Maybe a few years from now? Haha…
(Oh, and since I criticized someone else’s word usage, you just know there has to be at least one glaringly obvious error in this post…)
