Weekend Potpourri

This week, I came across a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Put it all together, and we have weekend potpourri.

1. Amanda Luedeke, from MacGregor Literary Agency, talks about all those tempting add-ons to your marketing efforts.

2. Edie Melson, of The Write Conversation, gives a list of no-no phrases when talking with a writer. Hilarious!

3. Positive Writer has some good advice on not sabotaging your writing.

4. Money Saving Mom had an excellent post on the comparison trap. This is one of my favorite money-saving blogs, but she also has thought-provoking articles like this one.

5.Susan, at Writing Straight From the Heart, gives us a peek at her stained glass collection. I love the one with the roses.

Writers:  What are some of the crazy questions/comments you've received from people?

Readers:  What are your favorite non-reading blogs? If possible, leave us the url, so we can check them out. :)

I've had someone ask me if I get busier writing books around Christmas time, because that's when people buy them for gifts. Another favorite is the comment, "That's great that you write educational books, because then you get the summers off."

Thanks for the links! Have a great weekend! :)

Hi Jean - That's so funny! With the long lead times, we could be writing them a year or more before they come out.

Hi Karen - Enjoy your weekend as well.

Susan :)
