It's been a while since I've done a Miscellaneous Monday, so I thought it was about time to share a few helpful links. Hope they will be of interest to you too.
Do you or a writer friend need encouragement? Edie Melson's post, 10 Things to Say to a Writer Who's on the Ledge lends great encouragement. Even if you aren't on the "ledge", her wise words will keep you going.
Whether you're looking to get a book published or not, The Hard Truth About Publishing - What Writers and Readers Need to Know, is a worthwhile read. Kristen Lamb examines the interesting history of publishing and how it isn't as profitable as it used to be for most authors. She offers tips on how we can help authors be more successful in the industry.
What advice can a graphic artist offer writers? Jennifer Brown Banks' Ask the Experts column highlights a few tips in this recent interview with designer David Lange. They discuss cover art and branding, among other things. And yes, David's my son. Thanks for tolerating this shameless plug. :)
Want to improve your writing skills? "Learn more and earn more"? The Coffeehouse for Writers addresses the needs of writers of all levels and genres. Check out their offerings at the Coffeehouse site.
Speaking of the Coffeehouse, I'm sharing my thoughts on Dale Taylor's The Writer's Guide to Everyday Life in America on their blog. This book is part of the Writer's Digest Everyday Life series; it covers 1607-1783 and is a great resource for fiction and nonfiction writers.
Do you have any helpful links to share? What are you working on this week?
