It has been a good week for interesting links around the web, and I have saved several in my travels. As regular readers know, I usually do this post on Saturday. But this week on Saturday, I was co-leading a workshop called The Ins and Outs of Publishing, which was held at an awesome bookstore, Another Read Through. And then yesterday was one of those days when I just didn’t get near the computer much. Which brings us to Monday. And a wet and dark Monday it is, at least in Portland. So here are some links to brighten your day:
I really liked this prompt from Janice Hardy.
Typewriters are hip again! (My grandchildren love banging away on the antique typewriter that sits in my living room. They are going to be waaay ahead of their time.)
The role of hope in writing fiction (this is about the actual writing of fiction, not the hope you have while trying to sell it).
Why can’t our fiction be as strange as real life has gotten?
Hate Twitter? Here’s how to master it in 15 minutes a day.
One way to up your productivity as a writer.
And Jane Friedman’s take on her own level of productivity.
The future of publishing remains bright.
“I’ve been hearing about the demise of publishing since the first day I stepped through the doors of a publisher back in 1978.”
And, finally, look at the good you can do when you become the most bestselling author in all the land!
