Hold on, let me check the temperature…Yes. It is absolute zero outside. Don’t go out there today. Nope. Never. Instead, stay in, read these awesome links, and then spend the rest of the weekend writing yourself silly.
1. Let’s start out with an older post, but still a good one for this time of year: 7 Steps to Getting More Done by Amber Lea Starfire at Writing Through Life.
2. It’s never a bad idea to practice, experiment, and continue to learn, but John Briggs makes a great point on Ryan Lanz’s blog, and that is to Know Your Strengths as a Writer.
3. Derek Haines has a great post on How To Market Your Self Published Book. Most, if not all, of these apply to traditionally published books as well.
4. Here’s another good one from C.S. Lakin: The First 10 Scenes You Need to Plot for Your Novel. Great stuff, especially if you’re in the pre-writing phase of your novel.
5. Finally, we aren’t William Faulkner, but that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to learn from him. Nicole Bianchi has a post that is definitely worth a look: William Faulkner on How to Think Like a Successful Writer.
That’ll do it for the week. Have a good weekend. Read lots, write lots, and don’t let the Christmas craziness get you down!
