Advice for Writers: 018

Back from Ohio. Had a great weekend with my two oldest sons. Now for some great writing advice from across the Internet:

How I Made 6 Figures as a Freelance Writer, by Carol Tice. This post includes tips and a breakdown of Tice's 2011 freelance income--in chart form! Very cool post from a full-time freelancer.

It's Not Always About the Money, by Rachelle Gardner. Gardner, who's a literary agent, explains how the end game of negotiating book contracts is not always about who gives the bigger advance. Sometimes, it's about putting an author in the best position to have a good publishing experience.

New GroupThink vs. the Writer in Isolation -- and a place in between, Julianna Baggott. Especially in terms of the novel (but applicable to all writers), Baggott considers the push and pull of writing as a group and writing alone.

It's Easy to Write a Picture Book. Writing a GOOD Picture Book on the Other Hand..., by Debbie Ridpath Ohi. Debbie dishes on what many picture book writers already know: Just because picture books are concise, it doesn't mean they're easy.

25 Things Writers Should Know About Agents, by Chuck Wendig. Wendig gives his impression of agents from his perspective as an e-book author. This post is written mainly for fiction writers.
