A Pep Talk from Francesca Lia Block for NaNoWriMo

For those of you who have been participating in NaNoWriMo this year, you’ve already seen this.

It’s one of the weekly pep talks that appeared in your inbox automatically. For everyone else, you are going to want to read this. It contains some invaluable advice from an author who has seen both sides of the business and from a perspective that many of us worry we will be pushed into.

Ironically enough, I went small press for many of the same reasons Francesca talks about dealing with during her self-publishing experience.

I have a voice. And it is very important to me that my voice does not get trampled by the expectations of the big presses’ desire for a healthy bottom line.

Do yourself a favor. Read the pep talk. It’s worth five minutes of your day. I can promise you that. And when you’re done reading, think about checking out the rest of the sight. NaNoWriMo is a fantastic organization!
