Great Tips for Dialogue From Meg Waite Clayton

My latest endeavor in the publishing industry has been to follow all the big publishers, agents, writers, etc., on Twitter. I absolutely love their tweets, and I wish I had done this so much sooner. I highly recommend it. Side note: I also love TweetDeck for following certain publishing-related hashtags, but I’ll probably post more about that later on.

Anyway, it was via @RandomHouse that I discovered this gem of advice for writing dialogue, as compiled by Meg Waite Clayton, author of The Wednesday Sisters, among other titles. She’s got a great blog full of great advice, not just on dialogue, so those of you working on your own stuff should definitely check her out!

A Great Twitter Account To Follow

This nifty twitter account was retweeted on my feed earlier today. It’s @AdviceToWriters, and from the quick perusal of the author’s past tweets, it appears that the account tweets mainly quotes, links, and other tidbits of wisdom for writers. The particular RT that I saw read:

Books are no more threatened by Kindle than stairs by elevators. STEPHEN FRY

According to the account info, there’s a website by the same author. You’ll have to forgive me if this is already a mega popular site, but hopefully others who also live under a rock will find it helpful and inspiring!
