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: Links for Writers, June1, 2012 Edition


► What do you think of this "submissions bombing" idea?


► Blog readers know how much I like writing prompts. In this guest post over at Jane Friedman's blog, Midge Raymond talks about her book for time-crunched writers, Everyday Writing, and offers some prompts.


Language is a Virus is an interesting, new-to-me site for writing exercises, games, prompts, etc.  (via Diane Lockward)


► Authors Kelly Corrigan and Anna Quindlen chat in this video.


GetPocket is a new, free site, billed as "A great option for those interested in saving video, images, text and other content, all in one place."  Viewable later  on any device -- mobile, tablet, or e-reader -- and, your computer. (via Wooden Horse)


► Some pointed revision/editing tips over at The Writer.


► Finally, the upcoming online personal essay writing class (begins July 9) is beginning to fill, so now is a good time to register.


Have a great weekend!

I love submission bombing idea. From what the blog authors say about motivation and accountability this would be a great group for me. Also love the idea of a site with writing exercises. Now,I just need to make more time for it! Great post.
