The weekly collection of writing-related resources, news, and reflections to read over the weekend.
To begin: As you may have noticed, I’m something of a dash fan (even if I have to disguise the dash as a hyphen sometimes for text-only newsletters that don’t absorb the auto-corrected dash all that well). Which is all a way of saying that I loved Ben Yagoda’s “Mad Dash” column for NYTimes.com this week.
“How NOT to Put Together a Short-story Collection,” by Amber Sparks.
Joel Friedlander’s useful “Twitter for the Absolutely Terrified Newbie Author.”
Clear-eyed post on “the economics of self-publishing,” with a detailed case example, from Anne Trubek.
If you’re in the Boston area, I hope you’re going to be able to enjoy the Boston Book Festival this weekend. Wish that I could be there with you.
Have a great weekend, all. See you back here on Monday.
