Welcome to NaNoWriMo 2015! To celebrate, encourage and otherwise fill you with enthusiasm for your NaNo project, we’ll be doing weekly round-ups of the best NaNo stuff out there for you to enjoy/distract yourself with.

Let’s get started!

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of moderating a panel about agenting – from manuscript to pitch and beyond – at FantasyCon. At the end of the hour, I asked the panelists for the single most important piece of advice they could offer the audience. Here’s what they had to say:

  • Kevin Andrew Murphy (author): Do exactly what you’re doing – go to cons, network, meet people.
  • Juliet Mushens (literary agent): Keep writing, and learn from everything you write.
  • Meg Davis (literary agent): Write what you love.
  • John Wordsworth (literary agent): Read everything. Read all the time. Read!
  • Ellen Gallagher (tv and film agent): watch TV; if you’re going into television writing you need to do your research. Watching TV is the equivalent of John’s advice, to read.

Good luck!
