Writing Blog Treasures 7~21

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 moving into the revision phase of Candace Haven’s Fast Draft and Revision Hell class, so for the next couple of weeks the list will be a bit shorter, including an absence of the “Featured” and “Movies” categories. Wish me luck and enjoy the links.

    Hey, Gene!! It’s like the trifecta present!! First commenter, a blog mention and (best of all) your Saturday AM mashup over my coffee. 🙂

  2. Jess Witkins says:

    Awesome links! Roni’s post is a total MUST READ! It’s already stumping me when I go to add photos now. Creative Commons isn’t a total solution, you still need to be really planful and read about the licensing. Smart advice though!

  3. Fabio Bueno says:

    I feel honored to be included, Gene! Thanks.
    Roni’s post is an eye-opener and a must read.
    Good luck on your Fast Draft challenge!

  4. Thank you for yet another brilliant link mashup, Gene. I have a dozen tabs open 😀 Your collection is one of the highlights of my weekend.

    • Gene Lempp says:

      Jess: Definitely should read Roni’s post, nothing is more enlightening than first hand experience.

      Fabio: It is a mutual honor, Fabio *smile* Thanks for the support!

      Reetta: Awesome! Enjoy the links and posts, lots of great material this week 🙂

  5. Thanks for the link love, Gene!

    So many helpful links in this mashup, Gene. Thanks so much! I did read Roni’s, and what an eye opener. Sounds like you’re making great headway in the Fast Draft and Revision Hell class. Go, Gene, go! No worries if your next mashup is shorter. Your writing comes first.

  7. Marcia says:

    I’m sooo late to the party, sorry! I haven’t read more than 5 or 6 blogs all week, due to trying to write in between trying to set up a website. The good news is, now I can take a couple of hours and catch up. I’m so glad to find all the best post right here in one place! I missed my dose of Designing From Bones, too. I’m off to fill up on this goodness!

I'd love to chat with you!
