I have been collecting a lot of great links lately and haven’t run any in a while. So here are a few, and expect more soon.
- The newly released winter issue of Etude: The Journal of Literary Nonfiction contains a wonderful essay by author Lauren Kessler, “Ch-ch-ch-changes: The New (Media) World Order.” The online magazine is published by the University of Oregon’s School of Journalism and Communication.
- I recently discovered inkPageant, which calls itself “A parade of blog posts for writers.” It offers a compilation of writing posts in an elegant, uncluttered format, and there’s no end of useful advice and thoughtful essays. If anyone has registered with inkPageant, I’d be curious to hear more about that experience. It seems like a really exciting community.
- PLoSBlogs ran this fascinating article, Practical Tips on Writing a Book from 22 Brilliant Authors, this past June. The author, Steve Silberman, asked writers in his social networks to respond to this question: “What do you wish you’d known about the process of writing a book that you didn’t know before you did it?”
- Donna Newton gives a very useful look at log lines, screenwriting style.
- I love Tania Dakka’s poetic musings in “The Key to Your Productivity.”
- Alicia McKenna Johnson recently offered a fabulous guest post over at Myndi Shafer’s blog. “Don’t Bleach and Iron Your Work” is about how to add diversity to your fiction instead of shying away from it.
