  1. ***Permission to forward granted*** RWA® Online presents: Editor’s First Aid: CPR for Your Dying Manuscript presented by Lynnette Labelle Maybe the horror stories about the hard road to publication are keeping you from finishing your novel. Maybe you've had one too many rejections with no explanation. No matter what is killing your writing, it’s time to breathe a little life into your manuscript. Not sure where to start? As a freelance editor, I'm telling you there’s only one surefire way to avoid the dreaded rejection slip—know your craft. And I mean really learn it.

  25. Ah, yes, what goes on behind the curtain. Well, right now we are discussing connecting with each other (and RWA Online) on facebook and twitter. One of our members posted her cover for her first book. Another reported on getting not one, but two requests. Then there is the usual "I have a question about --- (fill in the blanks)" whenever a member needs help with a plot point or discussing character names. And this is just for March.
