Take a Closer Look

I subscribe to various blogs and the ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) loop. Often the subject line will catch my eye, and I'll click on the link to take a closer look. Here are a few of my latest finds:

1.  I saw Elaine Stock advertise a guest post on her blog as, "Are You God to Your Characters." Before you get all up in arms, Connie Almony explains what she means. That title certainly made me do a double take, and I had to check it out. Will you?

2.  Sandra Ardoin hosted Mindy Obenhaus at her blog. Research fascinates me, and the way she injected realism into her novel required much daring. While I wouldn't go quite that far, she made me think of ways I could use my life experience to liven up my manuscripts.

3.  Carol Garvin, at Careann's Musings, shares a quote from Dale Carnegie.

Writers: What have you learned in the course of writing your manuscripts whether fiction or non-fiction?

Readers: Do you gravitate to posts with catchy titles or do you consider them gimmicky? Please share.
