Surfing the best of the writers' blogs so you don't have to.
I finished wrestling with the second draft of my current WIP, and it's a miracle I still have hair. Thank God for blog surfing. It takes my mind off my throbbing follicles.
It sounds like the opening of a good thriller, but the murder of reclusive UK author is as heartbreaking as it is bizzare (h/t Slushpile).
Booksquare has a link to an interview with editor Ellen Seligman . . . . check out this entertaining new blog Rejection is My Middle Name Name (h/t Ghost Word) . . . . GOB muses about an author who is using e-pub Lulu.com to market herself as a writer to NYC editors, rather than sell the book. . . . . Hal embarks on another terrifyingly intelligent and hilarious ramble (be sure to check out our two-part interview with him beginning July 14) . . . .
Quantum has a new look, and I'm a little envious about Eric's WordPress platform . . . . Melly posts a link to "Big Picture Writing Errors", and sadly I have a few in my WIP . . . . Ray has a good post on how character POV affects description . . . . At last! someone else hates workbooks too, and Allison explains why in a trenchant and hilarious post . . . . This is rich. At Writer's Beware, Victoria Strauss has found a literary agency auctioning their services on Ebay (be sure to check out Part One of our interview with Writer Beware tomorrow).
No jump this week.
