I started the Weekly Writer Useful Stuff on my blog with good intentions. But it’s been almost 7 months since my last post. Yikes.
At the time, I meant it as a useful reference for all the blog posts and articles I read during the week. Some way to keep them in one area, plus share them with fellow writers/authors. But, I’ve been overwhelmed with life and emails, and it just got out of hand. So much for good intentions.
I’ve still been collecting them. Well, actually, I’ve been keeping the emails, not reading them, and they just grew into this monster that took over my Inbox. I finally started adding them to a Word Doc. Below are posts/articles I felt were worth saving and sharing. I have quite a few, so I think I’ll start with posts just from Kathy Steinenmann’s site. Her website is very useful for finding ways to replace those annoying, pesky filler and passive words.
As you can see, her articles get right to the basics of writing. Her suggestions will help us clean up our manuscripts and make us proud of our published books. Our readers will appreciate it too.
