In Case You Missed it Monday
In case you missed it Monday
If you’re like most people last week was a blur and you don’t expect this week to be any different. Well I’m here to help you out. Here are a few great posts that you might have missed, not known about, or didn’t have the time to read.
Let’s get started on In Case You Missed It Monday.
So last week started off great until I received a private message from a new friend. He said he wanted to get to know me more. He said he’ll send pictures, and my husband doesn’t have to know. I almost threw up right there. I know I’m not the only one because this blog post popped up right after I blocked the perverted dirtball. Thank you, best-selling author Rachel Thompson from Rachel in the OC, for putting it exactly how I was thinking it! I would rather deal with twenty “I have an inheritance waiting for you in an overseas account” messages, than one disgusting loser who has no respect.
Moving on. Here is a story about censorship. A group of parents decided that it was better to ban Rainbow Rowell, a best-selling, award-winning author, from coming to their library to speak, than to give a warning that the book’s contents might not be appropriate. A little rating system might have been a nicer way to go about this, but no. Some people’s minds are so closed their brain can’t breathe. On the other hand some people are so open-minded that their brains leak out.
Speaking of libraries and leaking brains, this next story is about zombies. No, not really, but it is about ghosts. Keep an open mind and read up, your local library may have more to offer.
If you’re going to your library to refresh your memory of all the education you lost, educations that the good taxpayers paid for… then this might help you also. Lucy Pireel clearly shows us how to use adverbs and adjectives so our words will quickly and intellectually engage the reader who graciously buys our superbly written books.
If your book is NOT superbly written then perhaps you need to visit this blog. James Scott Bell from The Kill Zone tells us why he is not turning the pages of this novel. This is a great lesson for the newbies and reminder for all the veteran writers out there in Literary Land that we can always do better. Don’t be the example of what not to do.
And last blog post is just for fun. From Writers Write we have the top ten quotes about COFFEE!!
That’s it for now. Please if you haven’t said yes already, come to my Cover Reveal and Book Release Party for My Beautiful Suicide on Facebook. October 9th-15th. We have lots of prizes I think you all will love. Come and play.
Thanks for catching me up! I love reading your updates, keep them coming:)
I love your posts like this. By the way I get those emails from women who think I am a man. It is funny!
