The weekly collection of writing-related resources, news, and reflections to read over the weekend.
A dilemma for lots of writers (yours truly included): how open to be about one’s political beliefs and causes. Here’s Jenna Blum’s take on the matter.
Free today (and, I believe, through the weekend, but don’t hold me to that): “13 Ways to Get the Writing Done Faster,” an e-book by Linda Formichelli and Carol Tice. If you follow this blog, you know that I’m always linking to posts on Linda’s and Carol’s blogs.
Wise words from Jamie Todd Rubin in this “FAQ: Will You Read My Story/Refer Me To Your Agent/Help Me Write A Query Letter, Etc.?” (thanks to @mabfan for the find).
And speaking of wisdom: Roxane Gay explains why writers should be wary of Simon & Schuster’s new self-publishing arm, Archway Publishing.
ICYMI: My latest thoughts on “Jewish fiction,” inspired by Tablet Magazine’s new fiction series, over on My Machberet.
Enjoy the weekend, all (and, Practicing Writer newsletter subscribers, look for the December issue to arrive imminently). See you back here on Monday.
