A few of quick notes before you dive in: 1) I know some folks were having trouble with the link from Tuesday's newsletter (which I fixed) on 11 Common Publishing Terms All Writers Should Know so I'm including it again today; 2) My apologies to Brad Meltzer, whom I mistakenly called "John" in last week's newsletter -- completely my fault as I was discussing another project with a coworker involving John Green at the time and apparently I tried to merge the two, who both are doing wonderful things, into one person; and 3) If you missed it, click here to view our amazing Facebook chat with bestselling authors Sophie Littlefield, Lauren DeStefano and agent Barbara Poelle. It was a blast and filled with great info for writers. It's a must-read. And follow us on Facebook so you don't miss out on future chats and giveaways.

Also, we have several competitions running right now. If you want to win prizes (like cash and trips to the WD Conference) and, more important, gain exposure for your work, consider entering one of our prestigious writing competitions. Here's what's coming up and their deadlines:

Popular Fiction Awards Deadline: Sept. 15 - Details here.
Self-Published eBook Awards: Sept. 21 - Details here.
Poetry:  Oct. 1 - Details here.
Short Short Story Competition: Nov. 16 - Details here.

Especially for writers who don't have a platform (or a platform that's netting big results yet), winning a competition is a good way to elevate yourself, give more credibility to your work and help you get noticed. And getting noticed is the key to finding success in this field (after writing a great story, of course).

Take care of yourself and your writing,
