Writing Posts: 4/13-4/19
Every week I share my favorite writing posts. Mostly, because I know I'll want links to look through in the future.
The Great Critique Partner Question! by Shannon Messenger. She makes quite a few good points.
Don't Try To Make It "Easy". Just Try To Get It Done. by Ollin Morales. I love this. Also, I started going to the library to write on my lunch break. I get about thirty minutes of actual writing time. Sometimes it is the only writing time I get all day, but I've found I'm getting close to 1000 words in that time. Finding that little slice of time in my day is making a HUGE difference.
The title is too long, but it is an answer to a question about revising by Jennifer Lynn Barnes on her tumblr. I think it is important to note that I have never been able to put down one of her books. One sitting reads, every single one of them.
The Breaking Point and Beyond by Carolyn Kaufman. References to Nip/Tuck, yes please! I've only watched the first four seasons of Nip/Tuck, but back when I watched TV regularly, it was one of my favorite and the first two seasons are absolutely some of the all-time best-written television.
How I Came To Not Hate Synopses by Adam Heine. Because I still hate them.
Just Give Me Ten Minutes by Christina Lee. I totally use this trick all the time. This is on Janice Hardy's blog, which always makes my list, because her blog is AMAZING. This week I also loved her First Look at a First Draft post. So many things I know, but have never heard put quite so clearly.
As always, feel free to share your favorite writing blogs and posts with me!
