Day-After-Friday Blog Wrap Up!
After an all-day paint-o-rama led to a writing workshop which led to actually hanging out with the husband for once this week, the Blog Wrap Up sort of fell by the wayside. Sorry! There are many lovely links which I would not like to deprive you of, so without further ado, here are the posts and stories I found most interesting this week:
It's NaNoWriMo! Many folks had some great tips and tricks for how to jump-start your writing:
GalleyCat is posting 1 NaNoWriMo tip a day
Nathan Bransford has also a slew of how-to posts, like why to participate, how to start, and how to stay motivated, as well as a post about success and motivation from author Shawn Thomas
Over at Tor, a look at some of the most successful NaNoWriMo authors and novels
In other bloggy news, the website OccupyWriters is up, featuring poetry, essays, and stories from authors in support of the OccupyWallStreet protests
BookEnds Literary has a great post about how to be a "middle" editor, reading more than what's on the surface without overediting
And they also feature a guest post by Gina Robinson on the creative spark
As usual, if there's anything I've missed, please let me know! And if there's anything you'd like featured here, send me an email.
Have a great weekend!
