Sometimes the rarefied air of stardom wafts around a particularly fine human being. This is my costar Tom Hiddleston on our last night on the film CRIMSON PEAK. If I had a son, I’d like him to be like Tom. If I had another brother, I could do no better than he be like Tom. If I had a friend like Tom,…. Oh. I do. And he’s one of the best people I’ve ever met. Thanks for the laughs, mate. @twhiddleston (x)

Jim, you legend. It’s been such a pleasure. Thanks for the laughs, your kind eyes & huge heart. Stay close.@jumblejim http://t.co/KxeDELDELU

This comic I made over a year ago, but I’ve touched it up since and I’m happy to share it on tumblr C: while I’ve improved immensely since I made this, I’m still really proud of myself for making it.

ps. this was during a stage in my art where I was a little texture heavy, heh heh

sometimes you gotta pray for God to take people out of your life

and other times

you gotta realize God already gave you the strength and the common sense and the discernment to take them out of your life yourself

I'm currently in the process of writing something. When I finish, I'd like to see it get published. How should I go about that?

Hoo boy. 

First step: edit. Edit like crazy. Once you’ve done that, get someone else to read your story, and then edit it again. 

If it’s a short story, I strongly suggest you sign up at Duotrope.com. It’s $5 a month, though I believe you can sign up for just one month to try it out, and it’ll give you access to complete listings for magazines and anthologies that are currently open for short story submissions (including some publishers accepting novels and novellas).

If it’s a novel, you have a few different routes to take. First decide how you want to publish. If writing is primarily a hobby for you - that is, you’re not really trying to make a career out of it, or at least not just yet - then you can go ahead and self-publish through the Kindle direct program on Amazon, Smashwords, etc. Be sure to do your research to figure out which service you think is best. 

NEVER use a self-publishing service like Publish America or Xlibris. Unless you are paying for specific services DIRECTLY - that is, paying for an editor or for someone to design a book cover if you’re self publishing, or if you’re directly paying for paperback copies - there is never any reason to pay a company to publish your book for you.

If you do want to take a slightly more professional approach to publishing, there are still quite a few options. If your story fits into a niche market then you may consider researching and approaching smaller, indie publishers. The biggest benefits here is that indie publishers don’t require you to have an agent, and they are willing to take a chance on unknown authors and more experimental writing. 

If you think your novel has what it takes to be published on a much larger scale, then you have a long process ahead of you that will begin with you finding an agent. Again, tons of research needed to find the agent who’s best for the type of story you’re writing. 

Approaching an agent is tough. You’ll need to learn to write a query letter, a synopsis of your novel, and you’ll need to learn to be patient. 

How to Write a Query Letter

There are tons of online resources that’ll walk you through the process of what happens once you start contacting agents, and what happens if one of them takes an interest in you. Usually, you’ll have to send the agent your full manuscript, and from there they may ask you to revise and send it back to them to see if it’s what they want. If they decide to represent you, they’ll shop it around to bigger publishers to see if any editors decide to take it on. I encourage anybody who’s taking this route to do tons of research on the process on their own. 

I can’t tell you which route is best for you. I’ve had two stories published, and I have one more coming out in the next few months. I got very lucky with my published stories in that I follow quite a few writers on Twitter and one of them happened to post about the anthology that I ultimately ended up getting my first story published in. From there, I developed a pretty good group of writer friends and connections. 

The best advice I can give you overall is to do a ton of research and to always keep your eyes open for possibilities. I’m still not a professional writer by any means, but the fact that I have my name out there will hopefully be my foot in the door for future endeavors. 

Good luck to you!
