Here I blog about writing, editing, reading, books, submissions, freelancing, getting published (and rejected), journalism, revisions, life after the MFA, teaching writing, and living the writer's life. Welcome. BUT -- if you are a writer: Write first, read blogs second.

Friday Fridge Clean-Out: June 11th Edition

► Novelist, small press publisher, and dynamic personality Kelly Link has some excellent, nitty-gritty advice about writing, reading and publishing over at Anna’s Book Blog. I’ve heard Kelly speak several times, and although I don’t think I’ll ever write anything in her genre (paranormal and fantasy fiction), I always walk away with fresh insights and a desire to hear more.

► The name of this blog says it all: White Readers Meet Black Authors. It’s a good one.

► This exhaustive list of ways to jump-start, restart, and fire up your writing and writing process has something for every type of writer, at every skill level.

► My final link to one of those “writers over/under X age” lists: 40+ writers over 40. Enough said.

► Two book giveaways still active here on the blog: An essay collection, Why We Ride: Women Writers on the Horses in Their Lives (my story is on page 111; must enter by 6/13); and a novel about the south and so much more, Ghost Swamp Blues, by Laraine Herring (enter by 6/19).

Have a great weekend

Love the 40 over forty link. Forty is just so young these days, isn't it? Also...love Carleen Brice.

where have you been, Lisa? I was looking forward to something new. But thanks for the link to the 40 writers article. Nice blog.

CherylT, you noticed!
I was hibernating a little bit - at first it was planned, to finish a project, but now it's mandatory b/c of a (not serious, but annoying) medical issue. I'll be back soon!

I hope you're feeling better (and that you'll be posting again soon)!
