Hi, introverts: I don't know who needs to hear this today, but you belong in this community even if you're lurking and not sure how to stop. I wrote this a few years ago and it's all still true.

Hi people/ people /anyone putting yourself out there in an uncomfortable/vulnerable way. It's amazing that youre taking this step & getting yourself off the couch (as my therapist says) & letting your voice be heard. No matter the result, YOU ARE BRAVE.

A year ago, I moved to a new town for a new job. It was lonely, but I found a home in the . A year later I have an agent, am a mentor, and am working on my debut novel. My wins are because you guys supported me, and I’ll always remember that. ❤️📚

Good morning Twitter! Friendly reminder for those of you working on queries for ––it shouldn't read like a synopsis. Introduce the character, the problem, and the stakes (why it matters that the characters reaches the story goal). Don't try to tell the whole story.

Sooo, I’ve had five mentees and I think all of them rewrote 2/3 of their manuscript. So please don’t think your book has to be perfect to submit to me and . We are looking for voice, an interesting premise and the willingness to bust your ass for 3 months.

PSA for those looking at wishlists: Just because a mentor doesn't specifically call something out as a want doesnt mean they're ruling it out. I definitely didn't ask for Prohibition-inspired portal fantasy 2 years ago, but loved my mentee's book enough to pick it

I see a number of you still undecided about . I almost didn't enter a second time, but there's nothing to lose by entering. If you're picked, you get a dedicated CP & get to work your ass off. If you're not, you've still gained a bunch of writing friends & knowledge.

Maybe I should do . But my confidence is already really low. If I don't get chosen, I'll cry. If I do get chosen & a mentor tells me to rewrite my entire manuscript, I will cry. Since either option ends in tears, perhaps I'll skip it. But what if this is my shot?

I just read through the adult fiction mentors' wishlists. No one specifically asked for a historical adventure about a female captain, but hopefully one of them will want it. Infamous female pirate! Swords! Ships! And rum! 😁🏴‍☠️

I got another rejection this evening. It wasn't the "right fit." But it ended with: P.S. Cool concept. Just to have that P.S. is great motivation. Now back to prep!

How's the blog hopping going ? Remember it's not a race to pick your mentors. Take your time and think about who may really be the best fit for you and your MS.

Something that came up a few times on last night's chat was whether it's okay to submit to if you have queries and material out, and I had a few thoughts about querying that I wanted to thread. First: YES, absolutely! 👍🏻

I might tweet this every day until subs open, but you definitely want to get your info from the account and site and mentors' actual wishlist posts. Seeing SO many third party resources with wildly incorrect info.
