Sharing Tips for Writers Week


I'm on sabbatical this week so I'm running a few of my favorite tips selected from my SharingwithWriters newsletters. Subscribe so you never miss a single one at http://howtodoitfrugally.com. There's a subscription form in the upper right column of every page of the site including all the Writers' Resources pages, just as I suggest in my The Frugal Book Promoter.  You'll get a freebie e-booklet, Great Little Last Minute Edits, too.

 

Editing Tip: An article on my new most unfavorite phrase in the passive voice lexicon (along with a mini rant) is posted in my editing blog: http://thefrugaleditor.blogspot.com/2013/10/new-passive-voice-pet-peeve.html Yes, you want to avoid it, but you can’t avoid it if it hasn’t begun to annoy you. You will actually be able to use it if you ever need to lampoon the pharmaceutical industry.
