Posts I loved this week

I’m humbled and delighted with these posts. They’re simply amazing. Bloggers are highly talented people and, in my opinion, produce amazing posts. Check out this week’s great offerings.

I really appreciated this post on reasons to keep going when the editing gets tough. Editing is tough. You’ve created this beautiful story and, in editing, you cut it to pieces. It’s hard to do it day after day. I loved hearing reasons to keep going especially now that I’m editing Amy’s Courage like mad. A big thank you for the awesome post to Victoria Grefer.

I loved this post by Jodie Llewellyn because I think all writers find themselves in that place of doubt at one point or another. She writes with incredible courage and raw honesty that made me not only feel for her but identify very strongly with that incredible post.

A really cute post (and funny!) about lessons learned from the 80’s movies. Check it out and laugh! A big thank you to Dadmissions for the great post!

Seven great tools to hook your reader. Of course, great writing should always be our goal as writers but these are gems to keep in mind. I know I will keep these close to my fingertips. A big thank you to Monica M. Clark for the great post on The Write Practice!

I loved this post because it spelled out just how to connect emotionally to your readers. I find that my enjoyment of a book depends directly on how well I connect emotionally to the hero or heroine. That’s such a key point, so I loved this post and I’m very grateful to Nate Philbrick and Writerology for the great ideas!

Wow. Don’t miss this picture post by The Writing Catalog. Just…wow.

A big question all writers have to answer is what name to be published under. This post interested me because I struggled with that question myself and it offers a myriad of answers. A big thank you to  for the great post!

I loved this post by Mishka Jenkins on characters’ backstories. I love having characters with a rich backstory. I love reading about them too. Her post brought that to life for me. Plus, it had links to other posts on the subject! Bonus!

Oh, this post touched my heart. A dog’s eyes can say a million things. Incredibly, Part Time Monster caught a picture of this phenomenon. Amazing post.

If you’re an author thinking of starting a website, this post is for you. If you are considering starting a blog or want to know what yours should include, check out this one instead. A big thanks to Mishka Jenkins for sending those beauties my way and to Callisto Green for the awesome posts!

If you’re editing, you might want to check this one out. I have to admit, I make those mistakes. This post has great examples that really clarify the difference–for example between whom and who. Who knew! A big thank you to Jon Gingerich for the great post and excellent examples.

Finally, four tips for writing a great novel. This one was a hit for me because it’s only four, not twenty or fifty. A big thank you to  from Writer Unboxed for the great post!
