First, there have been some really awesome posts this week that I felt the need to share. These aren't all the ones I was thinking about, but I'm a little slow today from too little sleep and too much in-class time.
And, without further ado...
How to become a better writer (Rachelle Gardner)
Undercooking a Novel (Nathan Bradsford; I think I love this one so much not just for the content, but because his example is beets. Yum, beets!)
The Book Vixen's interview with Spoonful of Chocolate (I **LOVE** these things! *swoon*)
Motivational ideas from Burrowers, Books & Balderdash
People to see:I did leave the Burrowers' post for last intentionally—which had nothing to do with order of importance and everything to do with segue.
I think I mentioned this in at least three posts this week (indirectly), but I've been blind-rewriting a scene from my first novel. The first critical reader of the story pointed out that my heroine is a little too under-flawed. And, yes, it's true. The first round showed her as a prissy, perfect goodie-goodie. I knew there was something wrong, and how I didn't pick on this is still completely unclear to me, but that's what critical readers are for, right?
So, here's the question? Anyone want to crit read my spicy, obscenely sexually-tense chapter? I'd like to go over it a few more times before said limited release, but I think I'd be able to get it sent around by the middle of next week.
Food to eat:Tonight on the menu, we have kale almond pesto. It's fantastic. I would highly recommend it.
Also, for any of you who like food (and don't tell me you don't like food because I won't believe you), I'm going to shamelessly promote my husband's food blog. I want to draw your attention particularly to the salsa that's named after your truly :)
