dance-hype asked:Hi! I was wondering if you could give me a little bit of advice? I'm currently writing a manuscript and hope to be done in two months or so. I'm pretty young to be writing a book but I've always had a knack for writing and an ability to achieve things once I've set my mind to them. Could you please give me a little insight regarding what to do after I've finished my manuscript? That would be so helpful and greatly appreciated! Thanks(:
I’d get a critique group or trusted reader to be sure you are really done. Then I’d edit the hell out of the manuscript. Then I’d send it to agents. But FIRST of all, you might consider joining a free, trustworthy website like Absolute Write (if you’re writing adult or YA) — or Verla Kay (if you’re writing Kids or YA) — for advice on all these things, and more ideas on good next steps. These sites can be a bit daunting at first, but you’ll soon find your way if you ask questions and participate.
