I was going to write a Friday roundup but really I only have one thing to tell you about.
Recently my father asked me to give some advice to an acquaintance of his who was interested in getting into publishing. So I wrote her a long email (probably too long) detailing how I started in magazine publishing and what I thought were some key points to bear in mind.
For the previous few weeks I'd been meaning to play around with Blogger's new "web authoring tool", called Knol, but hadn't been able to decide on a theme for my first knol (a knol supposedly being "an authoritative article on a single topic").
Then it struck me: why not turn the email I'd written into a knol on how to get into publishing? So I did.
How to get into publishing
I hope it's helpful to a few people. If you feel so inclined, please do rate the knol and leave comments. But be kind: it's my first attempt. And no sniggering at the photo of me, either.
