Also, now that I’ve switched WordPress themes, I can go back to regular text hyperlinks; Andreas09 gives them a nice, clean look. However, I still like the idea of card suit bullets distinguishing the different categories of link soup, so I think I’ll keep them too.
So, without further introduction, let’s look at some good stuff posted recently by writers:
♥ Becky Levine pitches her two pennies on the value of social networking to writers, on the back-and-forth of writing historical fiction, and why writers should loosen the reins, trust the muse, and just write that “shitty first draft.”
♥ Scott at Reading. Writing. Revolution announces a collaborative writing project, Dorothy : Locked and Loaded.
♥ Bethany Wiggins at Shooting Stars announces a new blog about what writers read. This is particularly intriguing to me, as I have been throwing together a piece on reading non-fiction as a fiction writer.
♥ John Fox at BookFox analyzes the use of “credit” to describe a published work, and discusses the business model of literary journals.
♥ While momentarily not Distracted By The Internet, Kelly Morgan threads her way through video games and mythology to examine the hidden lives of obscure characters.
♥ Jade Smith muses on not getting what we “expect” from a piece of writing.
♥ And finally — dramatically — at Plotting and Scheming, Dawn Simon‘s husband Jim explains why and how you should back up your WIP file.
