    1. Thanks, Christine!

      I know what you mean–these links are in a variety of topics. Some are writing craft which obviously are relevant for forever. Some are industry news, which are probably good to catch up on on a weekly basis (but industry news changes so quickly). You’ll be able to tell from the links that I’m about a month back on my RSS feed (many posts on the writing craft were written in mid-June) while the news ones are in a separate RSS feed of mine, very current, and are linked to that day/day after on Twitter. So…news first? (Anything by Porter Anderson, for example).

  1. I love these, as always. I get all your tweets during the week because I follow you.

  2. Oh, so much for information! Now that I’ve indie published, it’s amazing how much more I’m focused on those posts. I’m thankful for writers (like you!) who share what they’ve learned along the way. It helps newbies like me :)

    1. Julie–I know what you mean! Me too. :) I still throw the trad pub posts out there for those who are choosing that path–although the indie/self-pub posts frequently seem a good deal more interesting. Fresher insights, etc.

      And thanks! I appreciate your coming by.

  3. Elizabeth – I love coming here for my Writing 101 Class :-) . Thanks as ever for these links. So many this week on making plots more interesting and adding to them. I know they’ll be useful. All that and rock music, too! ;-)
