Ugh, and Sharing the Online Information Wealth

I’m really sorry. I had a topic for today’s post and everything, but no matter how long I sat and stared at the computer screen last night, I just couldn’t make it work. After fiddling with it for way too long I finally had to scrap it and hopefully next time I’ll have it worked out and you’ll all marvel at my brilliance.  :)

For today, let’s just pretend I’m brilliant, when in reality I’m soaking in the brilliance of everyone else. Here are some great articles on writing and the business of writing that I’ve found recently, and I thought I would take the opportunity to share them with you:

The Trick to Making Fiction Absolutely Believable, by Nicola Morgan

12 Ways to Excite Pros About Your Novel, by Michael Larsen

Show Don’t Tell, by Faith Hunter

Writing Characters, by Ziggy Kinsella

The Politics of Offers, by Elana Roth

    I’m always afraid this will happen to me or worse I’ll forget the day so have to come up with one in a hurry. For this reason I try to have some waiting in a queue (folder) but right now it’s empty. BUT, I like sharing resources so for me I think today is a great blog.

    Thanks Lavada. It’s been too busy lately for me to stay as organized as I’d like and last night was a burn-out night. I really enjoyed reading these articles though, so I’m glad I could share!

    I love spending an evening reading writing articles – okay, call me weird – but its always nice to visit those and see if they remind me of things I already knew or throw something at me I hadn’t thought about. Thanks so much for sharing. P.S. I’ve actually forgetten to post – good excuse, but still – and a couple of times been writing it the afternoon of. Hate that feeling so share whatever makes a great post – and this one did.
