Whatever Jo Wants Wednesday #3 - Tips and Tricks on Writing, Marketing, and Much More

Happy hump-day, everyone! Today, I'm talking about my little tips and tricks page here on the blog. I spend one month a year organizing it, adding alllll the posts from the year prior, and giving little descriptions so you can find what you're looking for quickly and easily. Let's dive into what's there, shall we? Get your clicking fingers ready, grab your coffee, and let's roll!

Here are the topics:

WRITING TIPS
This is broken down into Characters, Plot, Craft, and Tips and Tricks (like using MS Word to measure pacing, how to use Google Drive to collaborate, and more).

ADVICE ON EVERYTHING
Where to write, things to do to help you write, book swag, and other stuff. All clearly defined for your reading and browsing pleasure.

EDITING TIPS
If you're in the self-editing stage of your novel, this is where you want to be. Broken down into Punctuation, Dialogue, Pronouns, Variation, and Word Usage, you'll find everything you need to help your editor help you.

ORGANIZATION TIPS
Tips to help you organize yourself, your book, AND your files.

WRITING EXERCISES
Things to help you practice your writing. Games you can play with the family and dialogue exercises, too!

BOOK FORMATTING
What should be there, how you can get your novel ready to publish, and a few warnings.

EDITORS AND CONTRACTS
About the different kinds of editors and a breakdown of several contracts.

BRANDING YOUR AUTHOR SELF
Genres, look and feel, and why how you behave matters.

SERIES POSTS 
All the series posts I've written: Human Nature, Enneagram Types, Branding, Look at your xXx, Becoming a Book Blogger, and Punctuation (that one is fun).

FREE PDFS
All the PDFs I've created here for you to download, keep, and share for FREE!

BLOGGING AND BLOG TOURS
There's one on branding and one is a workbook to help you check your novel and fix holes (THIS IS A NEW TOPIC FOR 2016).

MARKETING TIPS  
Tools you can use to help you navigate the online waters and marketing ideas I've had.

I hope you find useful stuff on these pages. Every now and then, I throw archived posts out there into the ether and hope someone finds them when they're needed. I'm seriously considering focusing on social media how to this year.

Which one is your favorite?

Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!

Jo

Play nice and have fun. If you're a jerk, I won't publish your comment. My blog. My rules. Thanks for taking the time to chat at me!
