How To And How Not To Ask A Writer/Blogger For Help

The steps to success.
Panzer was out in the Catosphere today just tootling around and enjoying himself. Our big bad kitty boy decided since he hasn't been there for awhile to stop in at The Write Life site.

After a little digging around, he found a post by Kelly Gurnett about asking your favorite writer and/or blogger to read and comment on your writing. Gurnett includes 10 don'ts and 11 dos in her post. The don'ts include things like don't cc your email to others, don't send an email without proof reading it, don't have a vague subject line, and seven other don'ts. The dos include things like do check the writer/blogger's specialization, do give compliments, do have an intriguing subject line, and eight other dos.

Panzer says, "Listen up, Kittens. There's a lot of work involved in asking a writer to read your work. Maybe you should just skip it and indie pub it."
