Smart Things

Dean Wesley Smith on agents. I don't always agree with everything Dean says but there are few people in the business who know more about its in and outs. My disagreements with Dean come in part because I think that he's far enough away from entering the field that some things that are true for Dean are not true for people just coming in now—hell, that's true for me as well. Some things have changed in interesting ways just in the few years I've been here.

Lilith Saintcrow on editors as allies. Really, your editor is on your side. Oh, and also, acting like what you want to become, in this case, a professional writer.

Snerched from Jay Lake, Paul M Jessup on how to filter advice on writing.

My friend Beth on the part day-dreams play.

Justine Larbalestier on book covers.

Jo Walton on reading SF.
