My new writers group met in Calimesa, and we had a good discussion about publishers – what the different class of publishers could offer, what to expect, and we talked about POD publishing as opposed to print runs.
I loved the mobile home clubhouse. We had a large private room overlooking the swimming pool, and we could sit around a table large enough to hold notebooks, extra books, pens, and drinks. It even had a small kitchen and at least two restrooms. What a joy. Thanks, Joyce.
During the next meeting, August 23, we’ll talk about manuscript mechanics. I’ll offer tips and suggestions based on my own experience as a writer, and we’ll talk about problems I’ve encountered as an editor and how to correct them, such as:
Quotation marks – when NOT to use them. Tags – are you using them correctly? Semi-colons? Are they necessary? How about those pesky serial commas? The name kinda sounds like a murder mystery, doesn’t it? Should you murder them?
