So you have a manuscript and want to self-publish...are you hiring editors? What's your next step?

Hey y'all...I'm trying to wrap up a "book" and figure out what to do with it. I like the idea of serializing it on Wattpad and Inkitt, but I'm wondering if I should shell out the money for a developmental editor and copy editor beforehand to really put some effort into polishing it up. Yes, I know this is expensive, but I have a day job that gives me some income to work with.

I don't want to pursue trad publishing because of a number of factors, first and foremost controlling my IP. Also, I'm 48 and don't have years to fuck with trying to get published. I'm kinda liking the idea of serialization and releasing parts of my first book in stages while I work on the second book, giving myself time to promote and build an audience while I actively write (and also maintain a marketing career).

I'm just looking for some advice/opinions on my next step(s). Are there other self-publishing platforms to consider where I can grow an audience? I'm looking at Wattpad and Inkitt because I know the

(Spoilers Extended) The manuscript of AFFC hints a kingsguard will die in TWOW

/u/Elio_Garcia just revealed a very interesting tidbit: in GRRM's partial manuscript of AFFC dated Jan. 2004, Boros Blount was looking increasingly ill and died at the end of AFFC Cersei III. Cersei thought he was poisoned, though Elio's impression is he simply died of congestive heart failure.

Then somehow GRRM changed his mind, and Boros stayed alive for another 16 years, till today. But if we look at ADWD, the line is still there, his death comes slowly, yet surely:

>Of late Boros had grown notably heavier about the face and belly, and his color was not good. And he was leaning against the wall behind him, as if standing had become too great an effort for him. -ADWD Epilogue

How Boros died,^(1) and why GRRM shifted the time of his death^(2) are quite debatable, and might worth threads of its own. Here I will focus on another issue: who will success Boros, when he fina

What made you realize you needed to completley re-write a manuscript?

What was your moment you realized you needed to re-write a whole manuscript. How did it turn out for you in the next draft? Did the story improve or was it worse?

Nearly 1/2 through my WIP and I realized my story has atrocious problems with character motivation, arcs, supportive characters, and promises. I feel like my story has become a mess and trying to build up the motivation to start again.

I realized I needed to re-write this draft after being 13 chapters in and the main character still has no motivation and a shoe string connections to the plot. I've also just realized what the story is meant to be and how I need to fix nearly every scene.

Structure: The #1 Problem With Unpublished Manuscripts (So you think you've finished writing a novel? Part 1.)

I've read around 10 unpublished manuscripts this year in full through critique swapping and beta reading. These ten were chosen based on having excellent pitches and opening chapters, so this was already a selection of manuscripts that SEEMED great. These were not bottom of the barrel.

I think any of them could have gotten a request for more from an agent. Most were so good that I never commented on the prose or "show don't tell" very much. They all mastered the basics.

I learned so much from this process that I feel a responsibility to share what I've figured out. Most this thinking comes from the detailed critiques written to these writing partners.

Here's the biggest thing I've learned:

NONE OF US KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT STRUCTURE WHEN WE WRITE OUR FIRST NOVELS.

In these ten manuscripts, I saw brilliant prose. I fell in love with characters. I got on board with relationships, appreciated good use of voice. I could tell that many of these writers had mastered good writing as pe

Does anyone else despise editing manuscripts and responding to peer review, or is it just me? Tips for making it less painful?

I like writing. I always have. I've written three manuscripts, and I've actually quite enjoyed the process for each one of them. But something I've learned is that I just totally hate what comes between completing the draft and seeing it in print. Every time for each of the three papers, it's looked something like this:

First there were the numerous emails sent to co-authors over the weeks prior, begging for at the very least a response to my email giving their consent to submit, much less feedback on the manuscript.

For the few that did provide feedback, there was the painstaking process of incorporating their comments when they directly disagreed with/contradicted each other.

Then there's the teeth pulling-like process of making sure every minuscule t is crossed and i is dotted in the exact specific way outlined in the numerous pages of the journal's style guide. Level 1: centered and all capitals. Level 2: Freestanding flush-left boldface. Level 3: Paragraph-initiating

[PubQ] Query Advice: Struggling to query a manuscript with 3 protagonists

I’ve been struggling with this query letter for months.

The protagonists’ arcs are intertwined and equally important. 1 is at the center of the action all the time. 2 and 3 spend half of their time in the main action with 1, and the other half in their own subplot.

Just describing the arc of 1 doesn’t do the story justice. But introducing 3 people and their various arcs, the antagonist, setting and conflict is information overload. I’ve settled with mentioning 2 and 3 in a way that makes them seem like background characters.

Should I mention that there are 3 protagonists when I give the word count and genre? Is this type of manuscript just unsellable for unpublished writers? I’m very open to the idea that what I’ve written just isn’t marketable.

After years of reading, can you identify any author/writer, if given their unsigned draft or manuscript?

Many of us can identify the write-ups of some family members at a glance, probably because of the sentence construction, tone, unconscious usage of a favourite word or certain peculiarity of their writing, etc. However, after years of reading a vast amount of literature, are there any writer, whose work you are so conversant with, that you can tell their piece, even if it is unsigned and unpublished.

Based on what you currently know, do you think the Voynich Manuscript actually contains decipherable information?

I have heard the theories concerning the manuscript broken down into two main groups, the "Signal" theories and the "No Signal" theories.

"Signal" theories propose that regardless of content, origin, and how it is encoded, there IS some sort of information encoded in the text, regardless of our ability to decode it. (E.g. lost language, cypher, supernatural origin, etc.)

"No Signal" theories propose that there is little or no meaning in the text and anything we "find" is a coincidence, by accident, or by our natural tendency to find patterns in everything. (E.g. Nonsensical automatic writing is done in a trance, fake/fraudulent document created to sell, parody/farce, etc.)

I am sure most of you know more than I do, I would love to hear your opinions in the comments.

As it has been six weeks since I sent out the fifteen queries, I want to query another set of agents. The first one on my list has the following sentence in his submission guidelines:

Always let me know if your manuscript/proposal is currently under consideration by other agents/publishers.

Does this mean I should tell him that I have received one request for the full manuscript? Or is the one request (with no feedback yet) not really something I need to mention at this point?

Manuscript- From conception to publication

Hello dear fellow academics,

As a first year PhD student, I have been struggling to understand/anticipate the hurdles I have yet to overcome, before publishing my first paper.

You see, I’m in a research group that is not very open to discussing trials and tribulations, however success stories are shared in abundance. None of my friends or family are active in academia.

I just want to know what I’m up against and get a realistic view of what will happen now that I have acquired the results of my analyses and am ready to write my first paper.

So, I imagine it goes something like this:

  1. We choose a journal to submit to.
  2. I write the whole manuscript (introduction, methods, results, discussion, conclusion), and include all figures and tables.
  3. I send the manuscript to my direct supervisors for feedback (postdocs).
  4. I send the manuscript to the last authors (PIs) for feedback.
  5. The process described above takes about 2-3 months, including all revisions etc.

[PubQ] Resubmitting a manuscript to agents following heavy edits?

A couple months ago, I completed an epic fantasy novel and started submitting it to agents. It hasn't gotten any traction so far, and one response I got from an agent confirmed my suspicions why: at 165k words, the book is just too long.

After playing around with the manuscript and identifying a bunch of material that can be cut, I think I've found a way to get the word count down to about 120k. But before I fully commit to these edits, I want to know whether this is worth doing at all.

I've already submitted the long version of the book to over 50 agents; I'm running out of new agents that accept this kind of work, and I understand that most agents don't accept resubmissions after rejection. Given that the word count is still a little on the high side, I don't know if it's worth the effort to cut up the manuscript only to get more rejections.

Does anyone have experience with resubmitting a book to agents following heavy edits? What would this process look like? Or is this a waste

Should I Bother Putting an Unpublished Manuscript on my College Application?

Hi everyone! I was doing research with an organization in sports medicine but, due to covid-19 it has been put on hold. I was lucky enough to be included in their research paper but the submission time will probably be elongated (everyone working from home) and I'm not sure if it will be reviewed and published before college applications (I'm doing NCM). Should I bother putting an unpublished manuscript on my resume or college application? I was really passionate about the research and basically did it for a year with another personal project of mine. Thanks for your replies in advance. :-)

[Discussion] Where are some good places to find beta readers to actually read your full manuscript?

I’m always searching the internet and other places for beta readers. A consistent issue I come up against is that most websites only let you post in small chunks periodically, and most writers groups only let you offer up one chapter or so many words a week.

My results have generally been that I don’t get quality reviews on websites because the few that critique an excerpt only ever critique one, so I never get anyone to actually look at a manuscript. They’re generally positive. Always stuff like β€œyou’ve got a few problems here and there but it seems like a solid story and I would definitely read more” and other polite stuff like that. I think it’s just the culture of those sites. You often can’t post unless you’ve critiqued a certain amount, so people carelessly critique whatever pops up just to get their stuff out. Nobody is there to offer help, only to get it.

In writer’s groups, I can’t tell you how often I’ve dealt with people straight up admitting they forgot significant char

How much of my manuscript can I post online for feedback (or just for fun) without risking First Rights to Publish?

The big bucks in book deals are in First Rights to Publish. If you can get a publishing deal with a publisher and the work hasn't been published anywhere before (online, self-published, or through a different traditional publishing house), the deal will be much more lucrative. It sounds as though some traditional publishers may reject a novel entirely if they can't get this First Right to Publish.

What limitations does this put on sharing excerpts online? Can I put a draft of the first chapter or two up for people to read? Can I tweet passages that I'm particularly proud of?

Have Googled, but it's tough to find comprehensive information about this

Manuscript revision deadlines

Hey guys!

I'm doing major revisions on a paper for a Springer neuro journal and they've given me 2 weeks to complete them. Between a bereavement, my PI being a frontline worker and COVID, it's not possible to meet the deadline and I've requested a small extension. Their email outlining the reviewers comments states "we are aware many researchers will have difficulty meeting timelines during COVID. Let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time."

Unfortunately they haven't responded to me over a week later and I'm not physically able to meet their original deadline. Am I screwed and if so how screwed am I?

[PubQ] Can You Query Multiple Manuscripts at the Same Time?

Thank you for taking the time to read this! This is my first post in this group, so I hope I do everything right.

I have been writing for my own enjoyment for the past five years or so, but I was in college and I said that I wanted to focus on my schoolwork before graduation, and take a look at starting to publish after I was done with college. I just graduated in May, so I'm finally starting that process. Looking back on the stuff I've done for fun during college, I have two full manuscripts that are essentially polished enough for querying. I'm interested in traditional publishing, and I'm hoping to go the agent route rather than just sending drafts to sit in a slush pile somewhere.

My problem is the two manuscripts are very different from each other. One is a novel I worked on for a thesis that deals with literary progressivism in the confines of a Superhero setting; I guess if I had to genre-define it, I would say vaguely YA, but it is not similar to a lot of YA books.

Using β€œmanuscript in preparation” or β€œin progress” research on AMCAS activities section?

I've done some digging on this topic, and I haven't found any very current search results. I have several studies for my research listed as "manuscript in preparation" as well as several studies "in progress." I have written a section for my job as a student research assistant (which is the job that gave me the opportunity to be a part of these projects), and I'm hesitant to just get rid of the description I've written for my job to provide the citations because the description talks a lot about my role and research mission. My manuscripts in preparation and study in progress citations are too long to even fit into 700 characters, even after shortening the citations with et al., etc.

I was thinking about just making 2 separate activities under the research/lab category, one titled "Manuscripts In Preparation" and the other titled "Studies In Progress" because I have room (doing this puts me at 14 activities), but has anyone else been in the same position in the past or is in the same

Mendelssohn Octet – manuscript vs. modern editions

I noticed, when glancing over the manuscript of Mendelssohn's Octet (here) that the first movement is written in common time, but with double note values, leading to twice the number of bars as compared with printed modern editions (e.g. this one). I know Mendelssohn revised the Octet, and the manuscript I linked is the original 1825 version, but I didn't know that this metric change was one of the revisions. The tempo marking was also changed from Allegro molto vivace to Allegro moderato ma con fuoco.

Does anyone know more about these changes? It suggests to me that Mendelssohn envisioned quite a change in the character of the movement. Nick Kitchen from the Borromeo Quartet gives an introduction to the 1825 version, a performance of which he participated in at the Heifetz Institute 2019 ([here](https://www.y

[PubQ] First chapter of my YA Fantasy involves a magical protest and subsequent clash between poor spellcasters and armed guards. This scene is integral to the plot and was written over a year ago. Given recent events, I’m not sure what to do with the manuscript now.

EDITβ€”Conclusion seems to be that I can proceed if respectful. Thanks, everyone.

First of all, my manuscript means nothing compared to the grand scheme of things right now. I’m glad voices are being heard across the nation over the real-world issue of police brutality.

A major theme of my opening chapters is the conflict between the powerful and powerless. This spoke to me at the time of writing and still speaks to me nowβ€”however, I’m worried about it coming across poorly to agents given recent events.

Just looking for others’ thoughts on this. Thanks, everyone. Stay safe out there.

Hey there.

I just finished my manuscript. Any advice or personal recommendations for help with formatting and typesetting?

Im actually pretty enterprising, so i created my own front back and spine for my print book and the cover for my ebook version.

I think i did a decent job there so im ok.

I also write extremely well, and i edit as i type, so my manuscript should have been done months ago, but i knew i didnt want to pay exorbitant fees for an editor, so i edited constantly. Its all clear for grammar, punctuation and spelling errors. If something slipped past me, it will probably be something so minute i wont care.

Ive edited to the point that i have almost my whole book memorized. All 220 pages.

I do know, however, that i sorely need a typesetter and formatter. I did a solid job already in word, but now, i need that professional help to create a clean, sophisticated look.

On a budget. Biggest purchase was the 10 isbn codes i bought on bowker for $295. Nothing else. Anyon
