God, I love October. It’s finally cooling down outside and there are Halloween decorations all over my block. Neighbors go all out every year and even my one-year-old is excited about it.
Anyhow, here’s another set of Five Links Friday.
1. I once had a friend accuse me of being afraid of pirates. And I actually am. I’m afraid of Ebook Pirates. Here are some tips on How to Beat Ebook Pirate Sites by Kathryn Miller Goldman at Molly Greene’s blog.
2. You may have heard me say (repeatedly) that you should write, or at least work on something related to writing, every day. Without exception. Leo Babauta at Zen Habits is here to tell you How to Write Every Day.
3. Do you have trouble perfecting your dialogue? Yeah, don’t we all. Here’s a post by Ksenia Anske with some good advice on Dialogue beats, or how to perfect your dialogue.
4. We take thing too seriously. And I don’t mean writing; we need to take that seriously. But I mean other stuff. Brian Tracy has a nice post How to Live in the Moment & Appreciate What You Have. Good advice for everyone.
5. Let’s finish up with 3 Ways to Create a Villain (Who Audiences Want & Heroes Need) in keeping with the Halloween spirit, by David Villalva. (Villains are kind of Halloweenie, right?)
That’s it for another good week. Enjoy this awesome October weather, do some writing, and start planning for NaNoWriMo, if that’s in your future.
