Friday Finds for Writers
My absolute favorite National Poetry Month (#NPM16) resource: the daily BoneSpark blog round-up posts. They are a-m-a-z-i-n-g.
“It’s great to receive a big wad of cash, of course, especially when you’re a writer with an erratic income trying to cobble together a living from part-time day jobs, intermittent advances, peripatetic teaching gigs and the occasional one-time grant. But unexpected sums bring unexpected burdens, both practical (What does this mean for my tax situation?) and psychological (Am I a fraud who does not deserve this money?)” The New York Times explores.
“I fully expected to raise children who were avid readers.” I don’t have kids in my home, but I have kids in my life, and Katrin Schumann’s reflections on “when your kids don’t love books” hit some chords.
ICMYI: I received some good news from Goodreads this week!
Finally, I want to thank PEN American Center (again) for resisting an outrageous demand.
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
