I was chatting to a reviewer on fanfiction this week. They told me that they were struggling with writers' block and I replied at some length - because I can’t help myself… and then I thought… hey, that might make a good blog...

Editing is SO important. I've hit a rush of ebooks at the moment with awful mistakes in them; mistakes so bad that I give up reading. I tend to start editing if the story is not gripping me so that is the first sign that its not any good.
They even have good covers, and great summaries and the reviews look good. It's just not something I can read past.
Thanks for the info, all the advice and the free first book in your series, Jen!

ah... it runs like well oiled clockwork.
Wait... was that the primary buffer panel?
Dozens of free (and legal) screenplays here: http://gointothestory.blcklst.com/

So a 'treatment' is like a beat sheet?
I guess it's easier to believe in your own screenplay, because to get through this whole process you'd really have to love it.
It is hard to write that logline but if you can't do it, then they assume that you don't have a handle on your own work.
I love The Abyss... but I snot sob in that movie...
oooh MORE resources...

I love his pragmatism! And how different that he writes the screenplay and the book at the same time. Very interesting chat, Michaelbrent. Now I have to go look up IMDB and see what movie he was talking about!

Last night as I was sleeping in my
warm bed, Best Friends Share Everything crashed through another milestone. And I'm just… speechless. I can’t believe
how far an incredibly rare pairing has gone and how much people love that
story. They tell me almost ever...

jet.com is coming... and soon amazon may not be the only choice... I agree with Sean's comment about the other retailers selling just books.
I saw someone complaining in the librarian's page on GR yesterday that their four books were not listed together and they had spelt their own name differently for each one... GR can't guess that it is the same person, so don't be an idiot.

Fascinating and I think Orna is right about offering something other than just a book. There was that recent fuss where an author was criticised for trying to use kickstarter. So much so, that she scrapped the project. 
Good Luck. Sadly I am not that enamoured of Yeats to contribute.

+Anne-Maree Gray I think it's aimed at a select few :) but hopefully the ideas around crowdfunding will still be useful to others

In Australia consumers fought for 'permeate free milk' and won... BUT permeate is MILK; taken out of the process early and then added back in. So it was an utterly pointless campaign. But permeate sounds sciencey and chemically and therefore bad... I despair at this fear

time lines, calendars,
world building, map generator with climate estimator...
scrivener templates? YES. So many writers use it. A template with built in beats. I've used templates like the hero's journey ones etc and tried to save my own; you can add so much that it's hard to know when to stop... you would need outer bounds. A line to work towards, too
