Writing Advice from Twitter - #RT14 Edition

The Romantic Times Booklovers' Convention took place last week and Twitter was full of updates. This year's RT took place in New Orleans so there were a lot of food and drink tweets. However, there didn't seem to be a lot of craft workshops at this con. RWA seems to be a "work" con, but RT seems to be more of a "fun" con.

But there were still some gems. The fabulous @katiebabs and @eridani99 live-tweeted the Smashwords workshop which had some great data in it. Here are the tweets:

Very interesting. Novellas don't sell? Fabulous. Guess what I'm working on right now? 

Yep. A Novella.

Oh, well. At least it's connected to a series. I've got that working for me.

Also, FOUR book a year? A MILLION words a year? Yikes!

@eridani99 also live-tweeted the Courtney Milan marketing workshop, which was, by all accounts, perfection. I'll put up those tweets in another post.
