A Wednesday Wrangling

Time was I reserved rounding up the latest and greatest books and writing posts I've found roaming the Wild Web for a Friday, but I've run across quite a number of great posts already this week, ones that fall into my Don't Miss It category. So without further ado, here they are:

Dale Cramer talks about keeping writing tight and trim. It's a subject I never tire of reading about.

Jody Hedlund discusses the ever-growing importance of a novel's first chapter. I have to agree!

Latayne Scott asks the question, should we unplug from all this on line social connectivity? I wish, sometimes. Other times... I'm still okay with it all. But then, I'm not published yet.

Steven Pressfield tells us why panic (for a writer) is good. Always love Pressfield's encouraging posts on all pursuits creative.

I'll stop with those four. Have you run across a great post on writing or reading or things creative lately, one you wish everyone could read? Please share the link in the comments.


  1. Hi Lori,

    Thank you for including me in your round-up!I appreciate it! :-)

  2. Jody, this is my perfect chance to say thank YOU for the insightful and informative blog you maintain with such consistency. I have no doubt you're paving the road for more one-day-to-be-published writers than you realize.
