Advice for writers from Becca!

The other night During’s live chat with Becca, someone asked for some advice for writers. Here is what she had to say.

1. Write the book before you submit to agents/publishers
2. Write the best query letter you possibly can (and have tough people critique it)
3. Don’t say bad things about other writers online (fortunately, this is NOT a mistake I made, but see others make…)
4. Be persistent. I’ve said this before, but I received nearly 100 rejection letters for HH over a 5-yr span. I’m so glad I didn’t give up easily.
Yes, don’t write bad things about agents/editors!
