Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • So, so good: Robin Black’s “Twenty-One Things I Wish I’d Known Before I Started Writing…”
  • George Packer analyzes “the new war literature.”
  • Straight talk on MFA applications from “Oronte Churm” (also known as John Griswold).
  • A book-review column I’ve just discovered: “The Caregiver’s Bookshelf,” over on The New York Times’s “The New Old Age” blog.
  • I recently had reason (albeit for the benefit of someone other than myself) to re-locate this excellent advice of writing the synopsis from Jane Friedman.
  • Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.
