flinging 2

March 14, 2009

Continuing with the Saturday flinging tradition (does twice count as a tradition?), here are some of the gems I’ve found this week from bloggers and other writers.

The Bold Soul reminds us that truth is stranger than fiction with her account of finding an Internet advertisement for…well, you’ll see.

Angela Booth provides some excellent tips for freelance writers who want to avoid those evil scam artists.

Emma Darwin comes through with a poignant post about writer frustration and the proces of questioning one’s talent, skills and direction.

Rachel King talks a bit about deadlines—something with which most of us are intimately familiar.

Helen Weathers of the Daily Mail writes about Jake Meyerson, whose mother has just published a memoir about kicking him out of her house for his drug abuse.

Joe Hill announces a contest that promotes independent bookstores. Calling all readers!

If you’ve read anything interesting this week, feel free to fling it in the comments. Have a great weekend, all, and happy reading!

    I liked Rachel King’s post, and her suggestion to read your work aloud to yourself to hear the flow of the words. I’ve heard that advice before, but I think it bears repeating.

    I just found King’s blog, and I like quite a bit of what she has to say.
