Friday Round-Up - #31

Chocolate Fact: Adding a bit of chocolate to milk is a great incentive for kids to drink that bone-building beverage. My own Mom used this trick. Bosco was my favorite brand. Other kids enjoyed Nestle's Quik, while some preferred Ovaltine. Oh my, I'm showing my age.

I checked out a new commenter's blog recently and discovered lots of excellent articles. Jennifer Hudson Taylor tells us how to "write the moment." We've all had those times where inspiration springs up and leads us away from our current WIP. Jennifer's wisdom will help corral those ideas and keep us on track.

Agent Kelly Mortimer, of Mortimer Literary Agency, has a great website called, "Perils of Publishing." This is a must-see resource for writers. Besides craft articles, you can advertise your writing-related business (editing, website design, etc.) FREE. Everything on the site is free. Kelly was named, "Agent of the Year," in 2008. I've bookmarked this one as a Favorite.

Have a blessed weekend!

I also like Kelly Mortimer. If her agency was open for submissions, I'd be querying away! Thanks for the links.

Hi Jessica -

I haven't looked into her agent site, only the Perils of Publishing. There's no way I'm ready to get an agent.

Glad you enjoyed the links.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Susan,

I'm not ready for an agent, either, but I enjoyed Kelly Mortimer's site!

It's always nice to hear about new sites for authors. Thank you.

Hi Sarah -

I like to explore also, but I'm trying to manage my time better these days. Yesterday, I even finished an article, which will go out in the mail tomorrow.

BTW, are you on Facebook?

Blessings,
Susan :)

Funny you should mention Facebook. My husband just created an account a few days ago.

I'm still deciding if I want to go that route. I already spend too much time on my computer. I'm afraid I might become a recluse. :)

Hi Sarah -

I've been on Facebook a few months. At this point, I have 103 friends. I try to spend a 1/2 hr. per day on average Facebooking. It's part of the whole networking thing for writers.

Someone contacted me about Twitter, but the thought of sending messages 5 or 10 times a day is too much for me. At the moment, this blog and Facebook are my primary Internet platforms.

If you sign up for Facebook, let me know. We can be friends. :)

Blessings,
Susan
