1. Let’s start with a post about your writer platform from Chuck Sambuchino at First Novels Club. This is especially interesting to me, since a good chunk of my “writing” time is devoted to this: Building Your Writer Platform—How Much is Enough?
2. And since another large chunk of writing time is devoted to revisions, as it should be, check out How Many Drafts Does It Take To Get To the Gooey Chocolate Center of a Bestselling Novel? by Aaron Ritchey at the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers blog.
3. Proper foreshadowing and misdirection can take an average story and make it a great one. This article from K. M. Weiland has some great advice on that very topic: Foreshadowing and Misdirection: Use Them Together to Empower Your Fiction.
4. Here are ten quick tips for new writers from Dragon in the Rubble that are worth a look: A little less conversation
5. Finally, here is an older post from site with some advice on Finding your Writer’s Voice. This is pretty important because your unique voice is what separates you from the rest.
So that’s it. I hope these links help you all get motivated to have a great and productive weekend!
