House of Literature Bookmobile

This is the place I share book (movie) selections and reviews I have found worth mentioning. I'll also share gleanings of family life, faith, home education, and ongoing writing projects. Book selections will include children's books, books on home education, Catholic books, classics, series, raising children, and books that are made for reading under a shady oak tree with lemonade, in a bubble bath with a latte', or next to a snuggly fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa. Happy Reading!

Writing Tips

Writing Tips of the Month:

1) Always carry a notebook with you – you never know when inspiration will hit.

2) Always type your work. Publishers, theatres, or TV companies will NOT accept handwritten material. Ever.

3) Always have someone read your work before you send it out- but not your mother, best friend, or partner. Try a work colleague or someone who is relatively unbiased about you.

4) Keep a record of where you send your work and what date. This will make it easy to determine when to follow up and resubmit if necessary.

5) Be persistent. Most projects are rejected, often by a number of publishers, before they are accepted.

6) Keep circulating your proposal.

7) Be teachable. Learn all you can to hone your writing skills. Constructive criticism is a great gift that will make your project better and help you grow as a writer.
