Okay, 2015 is going by WAY too fast. I feel like there is so much left to do before the end of the year. So let’s all hit the writing hard for the next two months, but don’t forget to take a moment to read this week’s 5 Links.
1. One thing I’m terrible at is writing a good romantic relationship. We write what we know, right? LOL. Anyhow, if you’re male protagonist needs a female counterpart, here are 7 Female Love Interests to spark some ideas care of J.S. Morin.
2. This is interesting. I tend to live in the “never use a prologue ever” camp, but Vik Rubenfeld presents the other side of the argument with his aptly titled articles, When to Use a Prologue.
3. From Molly Greene’s site, check out Self-Publishing: 6 Valuable Lessons I Learned Between Book #1 & #2, which has some great advice both for self-published and small press published authors.
4. How to Use Writing as a Remedy by Drew Chial gives us a good look at how journaling can improve all aspects of your life.
5. Finally, while not directly related to writing, this post from Cameron Morrissey looks at 3 Steps to Making Change Permanent, which can help all of us writers build better habits.
And with that, it looks like our brief run of Summer in November ends this weekend, so it should be a good weekend to stay indoors and NaNoWriMo the weekend away.
