Would you like to hear more of Tom’s thoughts on National Novel Writing Month? Would you like it if Mike subjected Tom to a lightning round of NaNoWriMo-related questions pulled off Yahoo! Answers, the express purpose of which is to make Tom’s head explode in anger? If so, this is your week!
Also: is it immoral, or just annoying, for journals to charge reading fees? And what’s the best way to approach revision?
Talking points include: Mean-spirited playground nicknames, editing vs. retyping, tricking yourself into objectivity, how to fund a literary journal, writing contests, and how Narrative Magazine is basically just a pyramid scheme. Oh, and books about ninjas.
