Every so often I’d like to do a “round-up” of sorts where I share links to posts that intrigue me, that might intrigue my readers, or—in general—that might be useful to other writers for a variety of reasons. I’ve got two such links to share today.
First, a huge shout-out to my friend Lauren over at “Curbside Wanderings.” She recently invited me to be a guest writer on her blog, and I shared this amusing piece that asks the question: what would happen if we started discussing commas in casual conversation? Head over to her blog to check it out, and while you are there, be sure to peruse her writing prompts. She recently started posting prompts each Wednesday. Such a good idea!
Second, today marks the end of November, and it also marks the last post in a series called “Thankful Thursdays” on the West Virginia Wesleyan MFA blog. I co-edit this blog with another talented writer from the MFA program, and each week In November, my co-editor and I contacted faculty, alums, and current students in our program to ask them: What are you thankful for? Then, we shared their responses along with links to some of their recently published work. If any of my readers wants to read words of inspiration and find lots of links to the work of talented writers, check out the Thankful Thursday posts over on the WVWC MFA blog. Here’s a link to the very first post in that series. All the responses are unique, all are inspirational, and all link to additional pieces of excellent writing. I’ve got lots of holiday reading ahead of me!
Happy writing (and reading) to you all!
