Friday Round-Up - #49

A writer friend and I got together last weekend. She reviewed one of my short stories and made some valuable suggestions. With the revisions finished, the story is on its way to a publisher once again. Our schedules don't always mesh, but I find it so helpful when we brainstorm a story.

Woohoo! I won Jeanette Levellie's office supply giveaway. She's worried the chocolate will melt enroute. No problem. If that happens, I'll just dip some strawberries in it.

My friend, Kathryn Lang, over at Successful Freelance Writer, posted a great article on online versus print writing. She explores the differences and gives tips for writing on the web.

Renee Gutteridge, over at Faithchicks, regales us with tales of unusual research. I don't know if I'd be brave enough to emulate her exploits, but I sure had fun reading about hers.

Have a blessed and productive weekend!

Hi Jen -

I'll let you know as soon as it arrives. I love chocolate in any form - liquid or solid. :)

Kathryn provides excellent information on her blog for freelancers. I hope you find it helpful.

Blessings,
Susan

Fresh strawberries dipped in chocolate...yum! I'm jealous :-P

Hi Renee -

I almost wish the chocolate would arrive melted. :) If it doesn't, I may go out and purchase dark chocolate, melt it, and dip some strawberries. I've talked myself into wanting them. LOL!

Blessings,
Susan

Hey Susan,

Thanks for the nod. I need to do more to let other blogs know how much I appreciate them. I haven't been able to get in the habit of doing an "around the blogesphere" type post.

Hi Kathryn -

You're welcome. Thanks for popping in to comment.

When I find excellent blogs, I like to pass the word on to my readers. Your blog always has words of encouragement and practical tips.

Blessings,
Susan :)
