I’m about to head out to the Oregon coast for a writing workshop I’ve been looking forward to for some time. The very talented Denise Little of Tekno Books will be leading a workshop on writing for anthologies. It will also be a chance to catch up with many talented writers, many whom I’ve known for years.
But before I go, I thought I’d try to start something new, a Friday post on interesting things I bumped into over the course of the week. Here you go:
- Up on The First Book blog this week: Mark Henry, and his novel Happy Hour of the Damned
- “Are Women Human?” And other publishing highlights. I especially liked this book title: How to Write a How to Write Book.
- John Scalzi’s Unasked-For Advice to New Writers About Money. Some ponts worth pondering. He’s surprisingly frank about how much he’s made and where his income has come from.
- My agent, Rachel Vater, has some interesting posts on the value a website has for a professional writer — even an aspiring one. Here and Here.
