A New Year's Gift is Coming

The Bad News...The Better News...The Good News...and The Best News will be a four-part series partly inspired by Brian Hodge's terrific marathon on his warriorpoet blog.  But unlike his study of revision, mine will deal with the traditional publishing scene today, rejection, competition, despair, and online options for writers.

I'll put my horror background to good use in the first entry tomorrow.  The bad news is scary stuff.  But I'll sign off on a note of hope, because I think there is real hope, setting us up for the second.  The unifying theme will be:  There are only so many seats on the ship and nobody willingly yields his or hers.  BUT the wily lad or lass is never without some good options and way-cool counter strategies.

Tune in tomorrow for part one!
