Friday Finds for Writers

Description: closed trunk and text label announcing, "Finds for Writers."
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.

  • “The nice thing about the Writer title is that, for the first time in my life, people want to talk to me about my work. The unfortunate thing about the Writer title is that, well, people want to talk to me about my work.” Identify much with Sandra Ebejer’s perspective, as explained on the Brevity blog?
  • I don’t think that I understand all of the implications of this development, but F+W Media, parent company for Writer’s Digest magazine, this week filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
  • From Joel Friedlander: “13 Tips for the Work-at-Home Author.” (Thanks to @Howard_Lovy for helping me catch this one, even if there’s unfortunately little chance that I’ll ever manage to follow all of this smart advice—but that’s okay, Joel seems to recognize this sad reality!)
  • Held this week on Twitter: a super-helpful #APStyleChat on “commonly confused words.” (Sequel to follow in April.)
  • And over on the My Machberet blog yours truly is hosting the latest Jewish Book Carnival, featuring news, reviews, and interviews contributed by bloggers/reviewers/podcasters.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone.
