Sunday Short Story(On a Monday….)

Posted on

writing-picture-short-story-sundaySunday Short Stories is a weekly post that shares some of the best short stories out in the ‘verse.

WOOPS, so I am still a day behind with my short stories and Poetry Send Off!

But on a good note,the Roland the Brave short story adventures is chugging along.  The Husband got his first read through of the first 2 stories, and the 3rd one is coming along nicely. But now I have a bunch of other projects bubbling up, new and old, and I am getting so distracted! Bah!  Anyway, here are my quick picks for short stories this week.

Out of Eden has been a lifeline for me. It is what I read at night feedings (every 2 hrs :S ) and it just transports you right into these places that Paul Salopek is strolling through. His writing is so beautiful, I re-read paragraphs 2-3 times just to take it in sometimes.

I also do a Poetry Send Off , which is a weekly post published on a Friday, so that you can be sent off for the weekend with a new poem to wow your friends/family/date with. It may also cause deep conversations or friendly arguments over what the hell it means.

Blogs & Tips That Help Me Write

Posted on

I love all the writing and editing tips that are out there right now, as they really help with 20160902_125809_hdrmy writing skill, and I am sure they help other aspiring authors too.  
Here are some great sites that I have collected and found useful (also, I wrote a previous blog post with a bunch of tips here)

 

A shwack of tips from Angela Ackerman of Writers Helping Writers.


I definitely recommend Writers Digest to anyone, I ended up getting a subscription. Here’s a recent article on How a Month of NaNoWriMo Can Lead to A Lifetime of Better Writing.


Sarah Rhea Warner Website & Podcast


Writing Excuses is an awesome Podcast hosted by Brandon Sanderson, Mary Robinette Kowal, Howard Tayler, and Dan Wells.  I started right at season one, and have jotted down so many tis already.  Their tagline is “15 minutes long, cuz you’re in a hurry, and we’re not that smart.”  Sold.

I typically write by hand and count my words, but here is another tip via NaNoWriMo regarding this style.

And, now, just something funny for you all.
