Issue # 27
Once upon a time....
This issue's theme is openings, and
we have some wonderful material. Some of the articles will seem
contradictory, but that's the joy of writing -- there is no one real answer.
You may find that a combination of things help you, and you may find your
own unique way to start your manuscripts.
This issue goes beyond just
openings, however. Be sure to read C. E. Murphy's Interview and see
how a new author is handling a plethora of contracts, and check out the
various other articles on subjects from improving your prose to taking the
time to accept rejections.
This takes us half way through year
five of production! Thank you to everyone who has contributed and to
those who read Vision: A Resource for Writers. I hope you continue to
enjoy each issue.
And please consider writing an
article for Vision. I'm always interested in anything writing related!
