The Wall Street Journal has a great article about vanity press going digital.

Meg Waite Clayton has a great series of posts on how writers get started. Start with Part I and read all six!

After the New Yorker released its 20 Under 40 list (I’m honored to know three of them—Daniel Alarcón, Yiyun Li, and ZZ Packer—Ward Six released a 10 Over 80 list, including Beverly Cleary, Harper Lee, and Elmore Leonard. Check them both out!

Rachelle Gardner at Rants & Ramblings has an inspirational post for writers eager to get published. And her guest blogger, Susan DiMikele, says there is no good time to write.

JD Moyer teaches you how to get luckier, and, what a coincidence, Meg Waite Clayton’s guest blogger Julie Compton writes about luck, too!

Simon over at Constant Revision has a fabulous post on the cycle of blogging.

A friend sent me this great New York Times article on 50 Fancy Words. Thanks Herzel!

Samuel Park has a great post on why writers irrationally dislike their WIPs.

  • Thanks for linking me, good lady! Three virtual Long Island Iced Teas for you! And some virtual chocolate eclairs. Yes. Four or five of those. 🙂

    Your post on branding was great too, btw.

    Happy Friday!

  • Thank you so much for the virtual eclairs, Simon! Too bad I ate all five at once. My avatar gained five pounds.

  • Dont anyone out there ever trust a jew. It will cost you. They rely on gullibility and naivety . Be what they hate the most, and fear the most. A well informed, aware and pissed off human being, focused totally on them.

  • Yes you are right, the argument in defence of Danny Boyle on the point remains, we are in complete agreement over that. I was just placing on the record my response to Rushdies rant, which you posted for the record on this thread. Cheers.

  • The best player I see on that list is probably Jim Kern, who got three straight all-star selections as a reliever, and actually received some Cy Young consideration in 1979.

  • Thanks for the points you have shared here. Another thing I would like to mention is that computer memory needs generally increase along with other breakthroughs in the technologies. For instance, whenever new generations of processors are introduced to the market, there is certainly usually an equivalent increase in the scale calls for of both pc memory in addition to hard drive space. This is because the application operated by means of these processor chips will inevitably rise in power to benefit from the new technological know-how.
