Share your Writing Resources!

Hi all!

Hey wait, aren’t there usually links here?

Yes, yes there are. Usually. Unfortunately, time commitments and the need to adjust to ensure those obligations are met has forced me to make a few hard choices this week.

One, is the need to let my normal Writing Resources post pass by for a week.

No fears though–Writing Resources will return next Saturday as normal with all the great links you’ve come to count on.

What I’d like to do instead is give all of you–my fine readers and friends–a chance to Pimp great posts you’ve seen this week and Promote ones that you’ve written.

Even exchange time. Pimp a friend, and then, Promote your own great work.

Enjoy!

    Hey Gene, I recently discovered Susan Kaye Quinn, who’s blogging her book, “The Indie Author Survival Guide” at http://www.susankayequinn.com/p/for-writers.html. It’s great stuff.

    And I’d like to promote a inspirational post I wrote this week, about Micaela Bensko, a woman coping with her loss of mobility through writing: http://www.laterbloomer.com/micaela-bensko

    Been enjoying your time management posts. Boy, do I need help in that area!

    • Marcia says:

      Great links, Debra! I love inspirational posts, so I’ll be over to your place soon. I’ve bookmarked Quinn’s blog so i can go later and read her stuff. Looks interesting.

  2. Gene Lempp says:

    Great choices! I’ll be sure to out Susan’s guide, sounds like something I could use. Time management is a struggle for us all, glad you are enjoying the posts. New one coming out soon.

    Thanks for the links, Debra. And thanks, Gene for the opportunity. I follow lots of blogs, always looking to add to my favorites list of author resources. Kristen Lamb’s blog
    http://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/2013/08/27/when-is-it-time-to-start-building-an-author-platform/

    I just recently started to blog again, not much up yet, but here is a little something about music

    Joanna Penn had an amazing interview with Marion Roach Smith on writing memoir. http://www.thecreativepenn.com/2013/08/26/writing-memoir/ Marion teaches writing and has a few books of her own. She took the confusion and mystery out of writing memoir so that now I may consider writing one, without so much trepidation!

    I’d like to promote my post ‘How to Know Who Your Audience Really Is’ http://marciaarichards.com/writing/how-to-know-for-sure-who-your-audience-really-is based on my own experiences in finding mine and what I’ve learned from other writers.

    Thanks, Gene, for the opportunity to do this. Smart way to handle a little burp in your time schedule!

    • Debra Eve says:

      Ha, Marcia! I almost put the Marion Roach Smith link up too. I interviewed Marion two weeks ago for Compose Literary Journal, but it won’t run for a few months. I love her teaching philosophy. Off to check out your post.

  5. Gene Lempp says:

    Great choices, Marcia! And thanks, seemed like the best way to handle the situation and still make sure some great resources were shared. πŸ™‚

    Hi Gene,
    Good for you! It’s not easy maintaining balance in the world of writing. My favorite post of the week was found over at The Business Rusch:http://kriswrites.com/2013/08/28/the-business-rusch-a-career-versus-publication/

    I had fun writing this post about an upcoming movie and Italy: http://christianfictionhistoricalsociety.blogspot.com/2013/08/italy-art-and-monuments-men-by-j-kent.html

    I hope you and readers will drop by later this week (waiting on technology so not sure of the date but I’ll announce it on Twitter, etc.) for the launch of my new journal, Jill’s Quill at my website. I wanted to do something a bit different so being a counselor during the day gave me the idea to create a place where we can share our mental status as readers, writers, and humanoids. Posts will be longer than a tweet but much shorter than a typical blog post.
    Thanks for the opportunity to share.

    • Gene Lempp says:

      Kristine Rusch is another of my favorites, always excellent content. Jill’s Quill sounds intriguing. Love delving into the “mental status,” as that is the heart of all we do as people. Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the opportunity, Gene, but we miss your links!

    I’d like to promote a new writer’s organization, Women’s Fiction Writers Association – open for business on 9/9! Check out what they’ll offer: https://womensfictionwriters.org/

    Then I wanted to make everyone aware of a class I’m teaching for the month of September, over at Margie Lawson’s Writers Academy, Submissions That Sell! Here’s the link: http://www.margielawson.com/lawson-writers-academy-courses/detail/2-writing/88-september-submissions-that-sell

    As always Gene, thanks for all you do!

    Two of the most fundamental writing pieces I’ve ever seen: one is David Mamet walking through some basics at http://bit.ly/13K7qqB, the other Jon Morrow’s hymn to raw emotion at http://boostblogtraffic.com/how-to-be-unforgettable/. Whatever list of links people keep, these deserve to be near the top.

I'd love to chat with you!
