Links and Things for Friday April 27, 2012

It’s that time again. Where I go back through what I’ve retweeted or generally enjoyed in the previous week and share some linkage with you all.

Blog Posts of Note

“The Greatest Writing Advice You Will Ever Receive Anywhere Ever” at After Ever After

Hilarious and true. I don’t want to spoil it, so just read it.

“How I Get Back Up When I Fall Down” by Carrie Cuinn

An insightful and inspiring look at how to keep going, even when life gets in the way of your goals. In short: just keep writing.

“The Big Idea: Chuck Wendig” by uhh Chuck Wendig

About the inspiration behind his novel, Blackbirds. It’s much more interesting than my description of it. Really. I promise.

“DIY: Creating My Own eBook, Part One” by Michael Haynes

Have you ever thought about self-publishing a short story, novella, novel, poetry collection, whatever? This post offers a step-by-step look and building an eBook for Kindle Direct Publishing. Straightforward and useful.

Free Fiction

“A Special Day” by Shannon Fay

“Machine Washable” by Keffy R.M. Kehrli

What I’m Reading

Unholy Magic by Stacia Kane. I put Shadows Linger off to the side for a bit and now I’m enjoying book 2 of the Downside series. I don’t normally read urban fantasy, but this series is hard not to love. It’s fast-paced and suspenseful as hell. A fine example of tight, polished writing.

And another week draws to a close. Going to Disneyland tomorrow because it’s my birthday today! I’m twenty…*mumbles* and very much looking forward to another day in the sun. It’s good to get away from the computer once in a while. 🙂
