Community spotlight is being put together for a release just before Christmas. If you've got a book out, something published, or a semi-writing-based achievement you want to see written up, it's as easy as clicking the little orange button off to the right, the one that says "Let us know."
Well, you also have to fill out the form when you get there. But it's short, I promise.
The column should be out just before Christmas, so it's a great place to shuttle last-minute shoppers.
Also, we're looking to include Nanowrimo announcements as well. If you took a shot at it this year, fill out the form as best you can and we'll put you on the honor roll.
Would love too, although I'm unsure if Wattpad books, even if given a LitReads sticker would be considered worth putting.
Good luck finding others.^^
Thanks! And I encourage submissions of all kinds. If you've got something going, hit that button!
The most I've accomplished is that I've read my writing at three different live events since I started my MFA.
Oh, and I survived my first semester of my MFA.
Beyond that, I'm failng miserably at life.
Ooo, reading your own shit to others?
What's that like?
@Jose. Cool. So glad you are reading your stuff. Boom. First semester. Boom. Failure. Boom. Breakdown and failure are both my old buddies. Inside of that is some good shit. Breakthrough is a lot more fun and happens a lot less often, but it is always just around the bend.
It's a little unnerving at first. Especially the first time when I had never read my stuff out loud. It made me really appreciate how important that is before submitting material. But, the second and third time were easier and I felt comfortable. It's just practice practice practice, and having the balls to say yes, when it's so much easier to say no.
And thanks, smithreynolds.
