Coming Soon . . . Unlabor Week!

Put that jigsaw down! Tuck your overdue paperwork under the couch! Call in with writer's block! It’s Labor Day week and that means we will not Labor! We don’t want you to labor too hard, either, so beginning tomorrow we’re going to take some of those writerly worries off your shoulders and detail a few writer don’ts.
Instead of the insightful, mind-numbing and finger seizing writing that encompasses most of our days, we are going to outline the road to representation for our awesome readers. Five posts that might be informative, could be insightful, but definitely are entertaining (we hope!) follow the efforts of poor, uninformed but hopeful Writer. Watch as Writer betas and queries his/her work, contacts agencies (in more way than one), dreams up rejection revenge strategies and, finally notes the top ten no-nos in a world founded on creative rule-breaking.

Laugh with us, smirk at us, hoot and holler, roll your eyes. It’s all good. Just have fun with us as we celebrate Writer’s Unlabor Day holiday.
