Anyway, I wish posts like the above were part of a welcome packet new writers/publishing pros had to read before being let loose in the digital wilderness. It would save a lot of grief.
@lilithsaintcrow Along with sitting any prospective writers down with Writer Beware, or my old contracts, so they can see what they SHOULD cover.
@StevenSaus OMG, I tell them to go check Writer Beware, and sometimes they… don’t? I’m like “for god’s sake, just go read, it’s free.”
