I hope today finds you well, and all is right with you and your world. Wednesday we had the Drunk At First Sight Blogfest--a total blast! Everyone put up great fiction and fun was had by all. I find myself again blown away by the level of talent and commitment out there, and want to thank everyone--contributors and readers alike--for making the day such a great success.
I am having a profound blast visiting some friends and family here in San Antonio this weekend and posting this one from the road, so have no time to get down a joke. Sorry. Go ahead. Slap my hand. A pox upon me for a clumsy lout--should have banked one, but, well, there you have it. Instead, if you think you can handle it, I give you pure unadulterated Link Love:
- Anne Allen had this very nice post on ten ways not to start your novel.
- Portia hit another one out of the park and makes Friday Link Love a second week in a row with her reflection on how writers deserve more respect for the hard work they put in. Thanks for the inspiration Portia.
- And in a post that points to a related question, Roni at Fiction Groupie asks: Should significant others read your work?
- First Novel's Club introduces the Interrobang, the "spork of punctuation." Yeah, I hadn't heard of it either.
- Elana Johnson asked last week why folks choose to comment or not comment. Here are her conclusions. Great stuff Elana!
