Writing Blog Treasures 7~7

Welcome to Writing Blog Treasures! Here you’ll find the best of the blogsphere from the past week. So, grab your coffee, sit back and above all – enjoy *smile* As a note, I’m starting Candace Haven’s Fast Draft and Revision Hell class today, so for the next couple of weeks the list will be a bit shorter than it has been, including an absence of the “Featured” and “Movies” categories. Wish me luck and enjoy the links.

  1. Seriously Gene, I thought I’d skin in here, check out the links and be on my way. There are just too darn many of them this week. I guess it’s a good thing this morning is cold and dreary ~ gives me loads of time to read them all. Yes, all of them because I don’t know what happened this week, but it was gone before I knew it so my blog reading is woefully behind. I’m still a little confused it’s Saturday. No more holidays in the middle of the week!

  2. Fabulous list – again. Thanks for including me.

  3. Thanks for posting, Gene! Love these link lists that you do. Especially, the “Writer’s Life” section. Tameri, it felt like Sunday when I woke up, but I am very glad it is Saturday.. 🙂

  4. Darlene ~ Sunday? Yikes! I thought it was Friday or Tuesday. Sunday would totally throw me. Have a great weekend anyway. 🙂

  5. Hi Gene,
    Once again, thanks for including Writers in the Storm among your treasures. Susan Spann’s series has helped clarify some “issues” I didn’t even know I had! And I really liked your Writing Craft links today. Some great stuff there. Thanks for all your time and effort to put this list together for us.
