Friday Round-Up - #90

Larry Brooks, at storyfix.com, looks at five scary truths about writing that are actually good news. I found his take on Pantsers vs. Plotters hysterical.

Angela, at The Bookshelf Muse, addresses the Seven Deadly Sins of Novel Writing.

Have a great weekend!

Than you always for your links--you always give me something to go look at. Hope you are well and that something opens up soon on the job market. Want mine?? hate it!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Terri -

I'm so sorry you're having problems with your job. Maybe you can look for something else. It's easier to land a job when you have one.

Praying for you, my friend. I've had more interviews, but no offers yet.

Blessings,
Susan

Those were both very good posts. What goes into writing, (especially fiction,) is more than I ever dreamed. And I did read books and articles on it before launching out into the deep waters. It certainly is not for the faint-hearted. I congratulate anyone who still goes on writing their manuscript, knowing the odds.

Hi Nancy -

I'm always amused when someone thinks they can just whip up a novel. Writing is one of the toughest things I've ever done.

Blessings,
Susan :)

On my way to read the hysterical article about pantsters vs. plotters. I can always use an extra dose of hysteria!

Thanks!
