Here’s my selection of interesting (and sometimes amusing) posts about writing from the last week:

Should Writers Blog, and why? (Jim C. Hines aka jimhines)

Think Outside the Bookstore (Heidi M. Thomas)

To Edit or Not to Edit (Larry Brooks)

Tightening your Narrative Focus (Janice Hardy)
by way of Elizabeth Spann Craig

Publishing in the Brave New World (Rachelle Gardner)

Do more research to give the impression of doing less ‘research’ (Juliette Wade)

Amazon Signs up Authors, Writing Publishers out of the Deal (David Streitfeld)

[Side note: I have to say, I still think there’s more to the Davenport/Penguin story [briefly referred to in this article] than meets the eye.]

Authors and Small Press (Patty Jansen)

Four Ways NOT to Get an Agent (Kim Wright)

7 Franchises Your Favorite Franchises Stole From (Andy Grossman)



If you have a particular favorite among these, please let the author know (and me too, if you have time). Also, if you've a link to a great post that isn't here, feel free to share.

If you found these useful, you may also like my personal selection of the most interesting blog posts from 2010 and last week’s list.

I'm so glad my small press is one of the good ones. I've heard some horror stories of late. :(

Good advice in the "edit or not to edit" not just for NaNo but for any manuscript.

Thanks, Jon!

Rachelle Gardner's was refreshing, Jim Hines's was reasonable, and the links from Patty Jansen's led to an incredible horror story. Good choices!
