Now today, my happy Rancourtesans, I've put together a few fabulous writing-related blog links that I hope you'll enjoy as much as I did. There's some really good stuff here, and starting a Monday off with a little learning is bound to make the rest of the week go well. Besides, it's raining like crazy here in Seattle, so we may as well stay inside and do some reading...
First up, I tripped over this one in my Twitter stream this morning, and it resonated for me because I've been reading Save The Cat, Blake Snyder's book on screenwriting. Check out Meg McNulty's Writing Blog From Darcy to Dionysus and her post, A Plea for Character Development. It's a great reminder of what's REALLY important.
Then I found this post from the blog The Other Side of the Story with Janice Hardy. This is my fave writing blog, and last Friday's post was particularly good: The Best Advice On Plotting I've Ever Heard.
I recently joined a new Triberr tribe, and one of the members, Veronica Sicoe, blogs about writing at Vero/Building Character. Her post The Key Element of Powerful Fiction is something you can live by.
This post from Nikki McCormack's blog Dancing on the Treetops in the Forest of my Mind is interesting all by itself, but the comments it generated are just as good. It's a look at the whole ebook vs tree-book conundrum (& thanks, Ellen G - I think that's the first time I've ever seen the phrase tree-book). What's missing in ebooks, or, Pizza without black olives.
Finally (and somewhat shamelessly) I'm including a link to Laird Sapir's blog Shabby Chic Sarcasm. Her Sunday post, In The Coop, was kind of funny, if I do say so myself.
Hope you enjoy all these posts, and that you each have a fabulous week.
