Good to go?

A few recent posts gathered together for the creative types, i.e. all of you.

Greg Christopher at the Statecraft blog tell us about a revision he has lined up for one of his games, along the lines of a recent post here at the Expanse on ruleset size.

Tim at Gothridge Manor has tough talk on cutting words in a manuscript in the first of a two-part series, and Greg is among the commenters, giving the benefit of experience. And if you have an agent or are looking for one, there is an overview at Demitria Lunetta on the process of editing for this particular person.

With your beauty in the bag, you might benefit from this post at blue collar space on getting copies shifted. Particular generosity in their sharing this. If you're thinking of touring blogs as part of the process, there's advice at The Other Side of the Story.

Almost last of all, should you be out of print, or worried about it, Fabled Lands might be a place to start learning the art of the comeback. They've been there.

But before all of that, are you sure you want to publish? This view of the Truly Weird future that is Riskail could either leave you with second thoughts or erase all doubt.
