Calling all writers!

For all  you fantasy and Sci fi writers, here's a resource for you.

THANK YOU to all who attended my workshop. If you have writing questions, contact me at write SLWG on subject line.

If you want something badly enough you'll find a way to obtain/achieve it.

I am an early riser. No, not 6:00 a.m. crack of dawn. More like pitch dark 5:00 a.m. There is nothing I can do about my circadian rhythm. Once my eyes open, my mind wakes up. Even the promise of more snuggling under the warm covers isn't enough to lure me back to sleep.

I invest my early morning time wisely, and it has paid off in the form of publication credits. 

I search key words on line for writing markets with the latest submissions call outs. 

I read guidelines and articles, take copious notes, and jot down info on Post-it Notes.  By the end of the month they're scattered everywhere on my desk. Sometimes the deadlines have expired, and other times I have to write fast to make the deadline.

If you prefer a nice warm bed to market researching, let me do the leg work for you.

Hi Linda. Thanks for the links!

I just had a brilliant thought. I should become a publisher! Then, not only could I publish whatever I want, people would send me cool things to read. ;-)

Thanks so much! I have barely gotten the bed warm at 5:00 a.m., and legwork is low on my priority list.

Linda--So THAT is one of the reasons why you're so successful and so prolific.

You don't give up. You keep searching and submitting. And you get up early, even though you're retired.

Thank you for sharing the links. Some I am familiar with and others not.
