Authors-for-Indies Time Again!
If you are not familiar with this brilliant initiative, you can read about it here.
Last year, I spent the day in three book venues, hand-selling books: Bloor West Book City, The University of Toronto Bookstore, and Type Books.
This year I’ll be handing out bad #writingtips on paper. These will be carefully selected from the 19 pages of egregious #writingtips I’ve been offering the public on twitter for the last two years. I solemnly promise you all that if you follow my advice you will end up happy and probably unpublished, which is a tautology.
Here are a couple from the archive:
Colons are messy business. #writingtips
Hey you writerly mofos. Today, we are going to collectively rock that damn Casbah. #writingtips
Take your foot out of your mouth. #writingtips
Invite Marx into your heart. #writingtips
My very first #writingtips was: I will begin by kissing all the words. #writingtips. I’ll be at Book City in Bloor West Village on April 30th, at 11 am, tea in hand, #writingtips in hand, smile in back pocket. Come!!!!!!
