Good blogs never let you down. I follow some awesome blogs and they sure deliver. Plus, I discovered a couple of new gems! Check out this week’s awesome posts.
Just for a chuckle, check out this post or this one by Infintefreetime. Interesting, short and funny or unpredictable, his posts are something I never miss. I think the variety is part of the appeal but I think there’s some wizard magic in there too–and possibly a unicorn or two. An interesting aside, the author of Infinitefreetime has written a book titled “The Benevolence Archives: Volume One” and is coming soon. If it’s anything like his blog, it’s sure to be an instant hit. Check out more information here.
A feel-good story, this post on the blog Living with Izzy made my day. It’s about an abused doggie who finds her loving home. Check out the great picture of her kissing her new dad. That’s one happy puppy.
Craig Lumen wrote a great piece on writing a great protagonist. He used movie examples, so his points are immediately clear and it was fun to read. Just before you think this was a one-time awesome post, here’s another great post by him with more help for creating characters!
I really like Jamie Lee Wallace. I’m always amazed by how well she writes. Check out this post done around moving. Could she turn that into a great post? She did more than that. The post was inspirational, full of ideas and tips on how to ‘spin’ real life into your book. A big thank you to her for that gem!
Oh my goodness, if you want a full out, gut-wrenching laugh, check out this post by Outmanned. I knew I’d laugh just from the title…and I wasn’t disappointed. A big thank you to Outmanned for that gem!
Last, but definitely not least, The Writing Catalog went out of the April A to Z challenge in style. The last post, on Zeugma, was intriguing and fascinating. Personally, I had no idea what zeugma was…but the examples are simply delicious. Loved it. Typical of this blog, the post was insightful and so well written.
