Buy “Runway”



Link Love

Lots of great links this week!

Editor Alan Rinzler has tips for blending the backstory into your novel or memoir.

Both Kristan Hoffman and Rachelle Gardner’s guest blogger Rachel Starr Thompson ask Why Do You Write?

And lots of query letter advice this week!

Agent Nathan Bransford suggests you query in batches, not all at once. And in case you missed it, last month Janet Reid posted a great checklist of what you need before you query. Moonrat at Editorial Ass gets great advice about querying from Dadrat.

According to Agent Kristen at Pub Rants, agents read submissions in cycles, and right now she is reading submissions. Daphne at KT Literary asks When Do You Give Up?

In an echo of my post Don’t Quit Your Day Job, agent Rachelle Gardner begs writes to keep money in it’s place. And if you’re wondering why, read this post on bookonomics.

If you have insomnia, you may want to try the artificial light experiment. My friend Elizabeth was inspired by this post to turn off her electricity (except for one small reading lamp) at 7 p.m. every evening, and now she’s sleeping like a baby.

What about you? What was your favorite link of the week?
