In the spirit of my previous post, I present to you some articles I found very interesting and helpful.
Understand also, I include these because one day I know I’ll want to go back and look at them.
The first is a post by Chuck Wendig about Choosing the right title for your work. I really enjoyed how he shared insights but also his own insecurities about a fairly critical task.
While on the title kick, here’s a quick link from Bubblecow on coming up with a good title. Good ideas to consider!
Finally, I pass on a link I discovered while in my Twitter chats last night. Sending out queries to agents to get represented is a pretty big step. Waiting, as many participants related, sounds horribly nerve-wracking. But when the agent calls, how do you know they are the right fit? What kinds of questions should you ask to keep from getting into a messy business relationship? That’s the purpose of this link, The Call or What to Ask a Literary Agent When Offered Representation.
Hope these help on your own journey!

Thanks to the link to my post about titles. When speaking to writers I am still surprised that many don’t consider the ‘searchability’ of their titles in Google and on Amazon – essential in my view.
I thought that was a brilliant insight. As you said, seems simple & should be common sense, but I think creative people become obsessed more with their title being original & cool. It blinds them to the more real world aspect of keeping it simple.
