Friday Finds for Writers

Treasure Chest
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.

  • Tough talk for writers–but also very true talk–from Chuck Wendig. (h/t @ElectricLit)
  • Another not-quite-so-encouraging item: “How Personal Essays Conquered Journalism — and Why They Can’t Cut It,” by Eve Fairbanks. Some valid criticisms here.
  • On a more positive note: Nina Badzin shares “10 Resources for Writers & Bloggers.”
  • Also encouraging: Over on the Ploughshares blog, literary agent Eric Nelson argues for “Short Stories as a Path to Literary Success”.
  • “A to X Writing Advice, Courtesy of [Random House] Copy Chief Benjamin Dreyer”–via the Brevity blog.
  • Have a great weekend.
