Swing low is a very popular swing dance move. It is often performed in conjunction with the Backward-Reverse Dance , but it can also follow a Low Swing High move, and vice versa.
A few months ago I had the opportunity to go to the UK to do some interviews for a new book, “How I Became a Writer.” I had only recently completed my doctorate in English literature. I was already quite interested in writing, but I had never been able to get anything out of it, and now I was starting the process of writing.
I interviewed many authors while travelling, including Robert Galbraith, George R.R. Martin, Ken Liu, John Scalzi, Ann Veal, John Scalzi, and the author I worked on with, Richard Powers. When the book came out, I was very happy to have helped launch it. I’ve also been fortunate enough to be invited to guest-edit a few book reviews.
However, there really isn’t much I’ve done that I haven’t already written about on my blog. I spent a month or so in New Orleans to record a podcast and write up the transcript, so that I could put more into the book. After that, I spent a few weeks in Northern Ireland and England to make some audio recordings for audio-book reviewers, to show them how the book came together and some of the process I went through.
Now that I’ve completed the Book of the Month Club book on the internet, I’m excited to offer some advice to authors trying to start their own blogs in 2015, as well as to bloggers who were already blogging in 2013.
You should always have the intention of publishing your book the way you intend to.
While some authors, and most book blogs, have done everything they know how to in writing a book, there’s usually a few things that are just not conducive to the type of book that you want to write. Here’s a list of some of the things that I would have edited out of the audio, written into the book, or changed from the original text:
Writing an introduction.
Adding a back-story.
Telling your readers the story of who you are and why you’re telling them this story.
Writing about your own experiences.
Writing a book review.
Writing a memoir.
How it felt to write the book you’re writing now.
