Fresh links for the new year

22, Jan 2014 by J L Wilson">J L Wilson in News & Notices     4 Comment

A new year, and some new links!

* Henry Miller’s Rules for Writing. My one rule is: sit down and write. No excuses. Makes it easy to remember.

* Predictions, predictions, predictions.

* “Shelf help” (self-help) books. Not sure why they need a new name.

* The boy’s club again, in an article with many useful links.

* I never read Wind in the Willows (I had an odd reading life as a child). I may need to read this now.

* Useful words that we should include in English. I rather like #3.

* Some of these bookcases are clever, some are downright scary.

* Eccentricities of great writers. Some…truly eccentric.

* Ebooks and print books: some interesting statistics

* Sherlock Holmes is in the public domain. Not big news perhaps, except for those of us with a Holmes story or two we’d like to have see the light of day.

* These are magazine layout fails that are too funny to be true (except they are)

* I’d be happy to earn $100 a day on my books, much less $9K.

* Similar to other library slideshows, this one is just American.

* How to write log lines (tag lines for books). Nicely explained.

* What not to say to an editor. ::snort::

    Haaahhha. I’m not too bright today. Great post!

  2. We can absolutely oblige that request. Alexander is working on the final piece of the series right now, which includes the addition of labelling. Make sure you have read all four parts published so far, and stay tuned for the fifth and final part very soon.

    Sara B – Catnapping at 6 months is within the range of normal. (and frustrating of course!) Mine all napped longer once they started crawling. Then at around a year they all switched to one nap a day and life got much easier.I could get a longer nap from them in a sling/ergo – wow I miss those snuggles![]

  4. I'm always bemused by the random strangers who wish me a Happy Mother's Day every year! I guess people just assume I am a Mom–not sure why. Sometimes I'll thank the person and tell them that I'll be sure to pass their well wishes on to MY Mom!
