Writers/Rhetorical/Indie/Saying Goodbye/Gingerbread

1.  Are you always wishing you could write like your favorite author, sing like your favorite performer, or have the success of an Olympic athlete? Linda Yezak guest posts at Everyone's Story about her struggle to embrace her writing.

2.  Margie Lawson guest posts at Writers in the Storm, about Using Rhetorical Devices. This gives some great instruction. Be forewarned, there's mild language in this post.

3.  For those of you contemplating Indie publishing, Traci Tyne Hilton discusses Four Things I Wish I'd Known Before Indie Publishing.

4.  Carol Garvin wrote about saying, "Goodbye," to favorite seasons and characters. Illustrated with her photos, she expressed that wistful feeling of moving on.

5.  Baking Christmas Cookies is a tradition in many households. For those with a gluten sensitivity or celiac disease, it might seem like those days are over. Here's a recipe for gluten free Gingerbread Cookies. There are many others you can find with a simple Google Search.

I especially like the link to Margie Lawson's post. Thanks for sharing, Susan. I'm planning to do a blog post, in January, about rhetorical devices.

This is the second time today the rhetoric word has popped up. I think I would like to read up on how and when to use that device in writing! A turn in a phrase can keep me curious while reading!
