My Picks for Recent Must-Read Writerly Blog Posts

I'm on the road again today...well, actually in the air, at least part of the time. I'm not sure how often I'll be online this week, so don't worry about me if I seem to be AWOL.

Did you see these blog posts for writers and bloggers? They're my favorites from last week.

8 Ways to be a Happy Author at Rachelle Gardner

Poisoned Pen Press at Lesa's Book Critiques (this one details a new contest for unpublished mystery writers)


Why Blogs that Allow Guest Posts Will Be Penalized in 2013 at ProBlogger (to be clear, this is mostly about bloggers/guests who trade posts for links that can be interpreted by Google as spam -- be sure to watch the video)

a turn of phrase that just turns my crank at Janet Reid, Literary Agent

The Book Release Blues by Janet Fogg at Chiseled in Rock

Tomorrow I'll have a post at Chiseled in Rock about one of my favorite restaurants in Fort Collins, Colorado. You'll wish you had one just like it in your town.

Another travel day. Sigh...

At least I have a couple of books I want to read loaded on my Nook.
