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 -- January 3, 2014 Edition

Welcome to the first link round-up of the new year. 

> I've gotten plenty of writing (or at least, rough drafting) done in short bursts, so I'm pleased to see Elizabeth S. Craig's post, "Tips for Writing in Short Blocks of Time." 

> Nieman Storyboard does it again with this list of excellent links to important craft pieces about storytelling, narrative journalism, essaying, multimedia and digital narratives.


> If you've set some writing goals for the new year, consider drafting a writing buddy or accountability partner, as Veda Boyd Jones explains in the ASJA Word newsletter.

> But before you push aside last year's half-finished projects in favor of the shiny new promise of a blank page, consider Jordan Rosenfeld's advice: finish something.

> For those who are interested, one writer's step-by-step for submitting to the Huffington Post (not new, but useful).

> Finally for fun, over at BookRiot, "Sh%t Book Snobs Say" (hope I'm not guilty of any of these!), and the inimitable Betsy Lerner (agent, poet, author, editor) started a list of 10 things she hates, and commenters chimed in with about 100 more.

Have a great weekend!
