It’s been a long day/week/hour and you’re feeling beat, but the siren call of write, write, write fills your head.  Your choices are read somebody’s book, write a few lines on your own novel, or sleep.  Jonathan Danz describes a day in the life of the writer who is tired and wants to know whether you go for quality or quantity when writing at the end of the day on his post, Two Days of Mediocrity.

Jennifer Neri also has a question for writers on her blog.  When you write, do you know where you’re going?  See Jennifer’s lovely post at The Long and Winding Road . . .

At the Editorial Ass, the Moon Rat talks about hiring a freelance editor to go over your novel prior to submission.  See Pre-Editing (Or, My Thoughts on Hiring Freelance Developmental Editors Pre-Submission) for details.
