Writing Snippets Episode Twelve: Tristi Pinkston 2 Author to Editor

We are privileged to have Tristi Pinkston here with us again this week. Unlike Lisa Mangums interviews on our website, Tristi started out as an author and then became the editor. Ava hosts as you will hear Tristi’s unforeseen complications going into the publishing world with a small press. You will also learn what makes some writers horrible to edit (anyone lost a limb?) The key to knowing when to argue with an editor, and the term used when a writer submits a manuscript that looks as though it just rolled out of bed. (Dyslexic writers out there, this is for you!) There is a slew of helpful information so without further ado…

* Bonus Episode Below: Meet Writing Snippet Crew member Jocelyn Carlin below.

Also, remember to comment to be entered into the free book giveaway. There is also a book giveaway on Tristi’s blog as well, so after you listen you could go win the second book in the Secret Sisters series called Dearly Departed. Have fun 🙂 Tristi will be signing books at the BYU’S Women’s Conference on April 28th from 4-6 pm. Go visit her in the
BYU Bookstore!

    When I first had people reading my manuscript and telling me what to cut out and what needed work it was really hard to swallow. Over time I’ve become a lot better about handling people’s editing comments because I’ve found that my best writing comes after I hear those comments.

      Good point Cara! As you stated, over time. It takes time to adjust to editing comments. If any listeners are having a hard time taking edits- hang in there, it gets a lot easier. Especially as you learn to recognize mistakes on your own, and that can only happen if someone with more experience will point out what doesn’t work. Awesome. Keep Writing 🙂
