Interesting posts about writing – w/e October 21st 2011

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.
