Great piece, Tom. I agree with you about the importance of reading. The great Walter Kirn says writers need to read at least two hundred pages to spark even one paragraph of their own work. Couldn't agree more.
I'm glad to have found your blog, and I look forward to following along on your journey.

Superb advice for #writers from the masterful @walterkirn:"I believe there's a ratio between reading and writing; you have to read 200 pages to write one paragraph. Minimum. Reading is mulch for writing..." Thanks to @AuthorLancaster for a copy of #TheMontanaQuarterly, a fine, fine publication.

It's an intriguing question - whether #literary journals can survive in this digital age; whether they even deserve to.
Once-important journals like #Granta and #Salmagundi shaped #writers and #editors like me for decades, but their weakness has always been that they manufacture a false scarcity.
Plus, serious, talented authors no longer have to be published by these erstwhile gatekeepers of higher literary culture to make their marks and influence the broader society.
Interesting article: 

Authors, your main character and your most important character aren't always the same person. Knowing the difference is critical. #amediting 

Hey, authors/fellow editors: Anyone use Hootsuite? If so, what are your impressions of/experience with it? Any advice would be appreciated.

Me: I'm so excited for #StarWars: #TheForceAwakens!
Fiancee: With #DarthVader?
Me: Um, no.
Fiancee: Oh. Was he the little green one?
Me: (smh)
