It’s wet. It’s cold. It’s soggy. It’s icky. Not good weather to go apartment-hunting in. While I’m out sloshing about, here are a couple of blog entries I found interesting for all you writers out there.
A fellow writer, Fox Cutter, has a post on how to write what you know (or don’t know). It’s pretty standard advice, but if you’re a beginning fiction writer, it’s good stuff. Just like the Cafe, he usually posts about the life of a writer–though he has the added bonus of being Head Editor of a fiction magazine called Renard’s Menagerie.
Continuing the theme of writing what you know is this post from Freelance Writing Jobs. This is more on the nonfiction side, but the same gist is there–Internet is a wonderful tool, but don’t let it be your only one. There are other places you can go to find information.
And I just started reading a new blog called The Master’s Artist. I found this post about editing pretty hilarious. I sympathize with Snyder, having my own fun in editing Willow.
I had hoped to get back into a posting schedule, but things have been a little hectic at the Cafe, or rather, outside of the Cafe. But things are finally looking up. Stay tuned, and in the meantime, sample the posts above!
