Episode 51: Tips from 28 Years in Publishing, by Patricia McLinn

Host Patricia McLinn gives tips from her 28 years in the publishing industry, using a “theoretical numbering system.” Topics include dialogue, character arc, writing process, editing, business and marketing, and hard truths. 

In Patricia’s words: “All writing advice is a buffet. You can pick and choose, you can try something, you can take a little taste of it, decide it’s not for you and leave it on your plate. … What you feel like eating right now might not be what you want later.” [3:30]
