Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • In which Jennifer Baker makes the case against adjectives (and adverbs).
  • “On Life and Writing. Or, the #Writing Life (or…if only).” I think we’ve all been where Christi Craig describes being this week.
  • #ImWithHer (and by “her,” I mean Elane Johnson, author of what The Writer magazine is calling “the most passionate defense of the serial comma you’ll ever read“).
  • This one’s not new, but Facebook reminded me that I enjoyed reading it five years ago: “Raymond Carver’s OKCupid Profile, Edited by Gordon Lish” (by Jimmy Chen on McSweeney‘s). And we can all use a few laughs, right?
  • And remember: If it’s Friday, you’ll find a fresh set of #JewLit links over on My Machberet.
  • Have a great weekend, all.
