Why the Sudden Silence? Also: Lists of Resources!

In between work and writing and the personal errands/businesses I had to take care of, I’m glad I am finally back here at Foxes & Fangs. I honestly do not know what to tell you at this point. Except maybe… Do not feed the bear! Ever. Because while bears are cute, they can crush you. Except, of course, if you happen to run into one of the three bears that Goldilocks herself met.

Okay. Let me pause while I struggle to normalize my brain. I’ve had A LOT of coffee today. Does that explain this weird rambling? Yeah, I think coffee does have influence on stuff like this. Now to end your agony in reading this post — Wait, wait. You’re still reading this? Oh, dear… But thanks! So to end this blathering, here are some stuff I found around the internet. Great stuff, if you don’t mind me saying. Click and enjoy! 🙂

FOR WRITING

  • Here are 22 things that book lovers are dying to let their boyfriends/girlfriends know.
  • I have always wanted to go somewhere and stay there for a couple of days, all alone. Just to write while getting a wonderful “me time.” If you’re thinking of doing the same thing, you’ll love this post: “The Art of the Mini Writing Retreat.”
  • You know all those random ideas that you scribble in that notebook (or phone or tablet) that you always carry around? You can turn that into a novel. Yep.
  • You come up with a story, write down an outline, write, write, write, then you edit, and edit some more. After that, you pitch your story, and after that… It’s a ruthless, never-ending cycle. Or so it seems. This article tackles that while giving you hope. (Don’t lose hope, by the way. Never give up. Write, write, write. Go, you!)
  • We writers have moments of self-doubt. It’s humbling at best and crippling at worst. Let’s focus on the good things and create something beautiful. Read all about overcoming your writing doubts in order to produce a rockin’ novel.
