    Dean Wesley Smith published 11 novels in one year GR has him listed as having 336 distinct works and he s sold a heap of short stories to anthologies and magazines Plus, he has pen names.Edward Taft Dee W SchofieldD.W Smith Sandy SchofieldKathryn WesleyOh, and he s also a ghost writer.He s been a writer, editor, story coach and still plays poker professionally He has posted a daily blog for something like 1257 days now His website is headed the writing and opinions of DWS because he is very outspoken about his opinions.http The ones he hates the most are the ones like these myths that stop people writing This book is made up of some of his blog posts rewritten a bit I think this was in a Nanowrimo humble bundle I grabbed one year.And for heaven s sake, be extra, extra careful when you listen to any writer who is not a long distance down the publishing road ahead of you Kindle Locations 94 95 I can t tell you how often I have used Kindlespy to look up a person s sales figures to see if they match their claim They usually don t And they are usually WAY off.Or seen courses on how to w...

    What a refreshing read Much of what he says in this book is what I ve sensed or discovered in my own writing publishing journey but was afraid to commit to because it was so counter cultural to what everyone is sayi...

    Good book on the various myths in the writing business I can t remember what all was in this because I read it a while back, but I remember it being a valuable book I should probably read it again.

    An excellent book, an excellent blog, and an excellent series.At first I was turned off by the blog because it was so revolutionary and contrary to everything I d been told about being a writer and having gone to graduate school for creative writing, I d been told a lot of things But the I researched and the I thought about things, the it seemed that Dean Wesley Smith is, in fact, b...

    I ve been putting off reading this for a while now, so it s probably 4 years out of date, seeing how fast the publishing industry changes year to year I mainly picked it up because I needed ammo for my Paths to Publishing project, so I thought I d see what Dean Wesley Smith had to say.On the whole, most of what he says seems to be good advice and supremely encouraging for a new writer trying to break into publishing He seems to be of a self publishing advocate, though he holds that there are good reasons to try to get into traditional publishing Funny, since he s traditionally published for the most part A LOT of what he says also goes against the grain of what is being taught in creative writing courses clears throat but are also things that I ve picked up along the way from the past three years figuring out my writing and publishing goals Also, he uses the term indie published, indie writers, etc, so I feel slightly vindicated because I got chewed out for using indie publishing to refer to self publishing and small one person publishing houses or collectives in outlining my proposed project and was told that I need to show my...

    Dean Wesley Smith details ten of the most destructive and well spread writing and publishing rules that has crushed writers, new and old over the years If you have had a serious interest in writing fiction for any amount of time, you ve come across at least one, if not all of them Smith calls them sacred cows of publishing due to their spread as hard fast commandments in much of the writing community, both online and off He explains each of the sacred cows , their origins and why they are destructive, and counters the myth through the lessons he has learned in his four decades of fiction writing experience.This book was, and still is a life saver I was trapped in the myths for a while, and found my interest in writing almost snuffed out Smith does not sugar coat with his blunt delivery, but at the same time, it s a relief to be free of a lot of the constraints that have been put on by myself and others because it s the way it s done in the writing world I m able to do things my way instead of crushing myself trying to follow the right wa...
