Organizing Content in Social Media

How sweet it is when we see a life rope headed our way.

Good morning, West Coast, and good afternoon in the East.

Jane Friedman, holding many credentials,  writes an excellent newsletter.  Anyone who participates in Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, Tumbler, and so on, would find the newsletter listed here something to consider.  The links she shared promise great help in organizing possible social network posts/topics of interest to your friends and readers.  She calls these linked sites “Curators.”  I hope those interested can find something that helps streamline managing social media.

Have a great week, all.  Put yesterday away, let tomorrow come as it will, and enjoy today.

    Thanks Lesann. I’ve already learned some valuable things in just a short while. Glad you were able to exchange information with her! Great opportunity. Happy Thanksgiving, no matter what it entails for folks …

    I’ve taken a couple of workshops from Jane Friedman and she’s not only knowledgable, but conversant with people who don’t have technical background. Her website is filled with lots of helpful data but if you have a chance to meet her in person, it’s an excellent opportunity to ask questions about specifics. = )

    I’ll have to check it out. Social Media is a bit…overwhelming, at times.:) Thanks for the tip.

      Thanks for dropping in, Laurie. Writing is priority one right now, so I haven’t spent a great deal of time looking at the links Jane Friedman offered, but they look promising if one wants to corner various interests automatically and schedule them for a blog. It could be special news, hobbies, teaching sites, etc.

      Hope you find something helpful. I brushed through it, but the time thing, you know? I must say no to some things for a while. Jane Friedman is a great resource.

      I just checked your blog! Wonderful! Whistler and snow! Gorgeous.

  • What NOT to Write in Your Story Opening May 24, 2016
    Writers, you need to wow the reader from page one, especially if you are trying to get an agent or editor in traditional publishing. So here are a few tips of what NOT to do in your opening. Never start your story with: 1. The "to be" verb variations: what a waste of space. If you can avoid the "he was"/"there are" constructions […]
  • 3 Tips to Boost Your Story's Opening Lines May 19, 2016
    In my First 50 Pages class today, I shared 3 tips that students could use to boost the opening lines of their novels: 1. Leverage your verbs! Language matters in your opener, and if you choose strong verbs, your other language choices will follow naturally from there to paint both your story and your character with more creative flair. For example: If you ha […]
  • My First 50 Pages Class Returns! May 12, 2016
    My First 50 Pages class is finally back on the calendar! I've taught a lot of conferences, and yet I still see students making the same obvious mistakes in their opening pages. Most of these mistakes are avoidable. Unfortunately, agents/editors/judges assume from such mistakes that the author is a newbie or untalented, when in fact the author's sto […]
  • Using Dialogue to Build Character Development May 5, 2016
    Here is an encore post from my character development book: Characterization is the painting of a character in a story through narrative, dialogue and action. Done well, the character will come to life on the page as if they are a real person. Done poorly, and the author has succeeded in creating cardboard. And the reader will never forget it. As Noah Lukeman […]
  • Make Your Writing Rule! April 15, 2016
    Nobody likes to be bound by rules. As The Editor Devil, I especially hate rules. But the rules of scene building help you better meet the goals of storytelling. Here are a few that help you move the story forward not backward, show not tell, and entertain not bore your reader. Rule #1: Each scene in your manuscript should move a story forward, even if it’s m […]
  • Are Boxed Sets Done? May 26, 2015
    Creating the Boxed Set LOVE DOWN UNDER by Rosalind James A little background: LOVE DOWN UNDER (Eight New Zealand & Australian Feel-Good Beach Romances), went up for sale on all outlets on May 20, and, one day later, has reached the 300s overall on Amazon US, the 100s overall on Barnes & Noble, and the 100s in Romance on iBooks.

  • Reaching Goals & Helping Friends May 18, 2015
    Passion & Danger on sale at My main goal this year was to set new goals. Some lofty, some simple, but new and fresh and therefore more exciting to work towards. 1) My first goal was to reboot my career as a writer/editor, now that my schedule is free to return to work. Check! 2) My second goal was to get book 2 of my Goliath tr […]
  • Show, Don't Tell... And why Scene-style Writing is More Effective January 21, 2014
    Happy 2014, and sorry to have been absent so long. Working on book two of my series and building our other blog ( I've missed the lively editing discussions we had here, so I'm going to use my ideas spurred from my current class, Sensational Scenes (which is open for enrollment thru 1/24 http://ce.savvyauthors.c […]
  • Remember to Fact Check Story Details! July 29, 2013
    Everyone loves a story told with rich details. Even I say that a story has to be 80-90% factual to be believable. The other 10-20% gives room for "fiction", or the made up part. But lately I've been thrown out of stories by physical details not in line with reality. They were innocent, but made the reader blink. In baseball terms, they would b […]
