Friday Round-Up - #94

Kathryn Lang, at Successful Freelance Writer, gives six tips for exposed writing. Are you transparent?

Symbols are all around us. The Bookshelf Muse gives us a look at writing a word, a phrase, or object with a deeper meaning.

Have a blessed weekend!

Thanks!

Can you be too transparent? That's what I wonder as I write edgier fiction. You know, TMI type thing...

Good thoughts on these blogs!
Patti

Jeanette Levellie said...

I must read Kathryn's post. I think I am transparent--we'll see if I'm right.

Interesting question. Maybe we can explore it in a future blog post. :)

Another great Friday round-up! Kathryn and Bill Coffey's advice to be transparent in our writing is something I'm really taking to heart. Thanks!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Sharon -

You're welcome! I guess this is akin to "opening a vein."

Blessings,
Susan :)

Sandra Heska King said...

Well, this is going to shoot a whole day! Or more. Good stuff.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Sandra -

Oh dear, I hope not! Have fun exploring the links. :)

On being transparent - I can see how knowing friends were viewing your blog could shut down your boldness a bit. Not too many people know me in person so I can be pretty "invisible."

It seems that a Symbolism Thesaurus would be a good thing to have. I love those deeper meanings.

I always enjoy Kathryn Lang's blog posts. I think I'm pretty transparent in my writing, especially on my Compost Pile blog. Sometimes, I write a first draft straight from the heart without worrying about being too transparent. Then, I go back and soften things a bit.

Blessings to you, Susan!
Jean

Hi Nancy -

Good thoughts. Several people I know personally read my blog, but I'm a "what you see is what you get" kind of gal. This is the real me.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Jean -

My first drafts are done in Blogger. I preview all my posts to check for errors, and make sure my meaning is clear.

I think you do a great job with Compost Pile. Whenever there's a new entry, I'm right there. :)

Blessings,
Susan

Jan Cline said...

HI Susan
Transparency. Such a shallow term for something so deep. I always enjoy your links! (and you too!)
Happy Sunday!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Jan -

I'm glad you enjoy the links (and me). :)

Blessings,
Susan

Terri Tiffany said...

Hope your weekend is wondeful! Thank you again:)

Karen Lange said...

I don't know..need to think about this. Thanks for the links.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Terri -

You're welcome! We enjoyed super nice weather.

Some of the seeds I planted the other day already sprouted. Yay!

Blessings,
Susan :)

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Karen -

You've had a lot on your mind. Maybe the article will clarify the subject.

Blessings,
Susan :)

I have to repost to tell you that the real you is someone I am very happy to have met.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...
