The Author Within Each of Us
~~ By Editor Janet Fix ~~ A Pipeline Contribution
I recently started this: http://nogoofs.blogspot.com/, a CONVERSATION CUBBY for editors and authors, in hopes to increase awareness of the needs of each other. In my current interactions in the industry, I see self-publishing taking a step back slightly and, instead, responsibility in writing taking a step forward. The inevitable bond that must take place between a professional editor and an author (new or not), I suspect, will contain many important elements for ultimate effectiveness. Without each other, the story is simply, well, self-published.
Here is one of the first blog posts for the No Goofs blog. Follow me on that one, and contribute as much as possible because all your ideas are important to us. We want to be better editors and writers for YOU. http://nogoofs.blogspot.com/2012/03/memories-and-memoirs.html
