Happy Memorial Day!

I hope everyone has a beautiful day. I'm off to prepare food for guests, so I'll keep it short and sweet. I think that I may have mentioned this once before, but just in case...

If you're a serious writer, you really, really should get a subscription to Writer's Digest Magazine. Just my humble opinion, but they have great articles on writing, as well as one called 'Ask The Agent'. The edition that just arrived in the mail (July/August 2011) is titled 'Your Ultimate Revision Guide' and it has wonderful articles on different aspects of revision (character depth, voice, tone etc...).  One article is by James Scott Bell, author of Plot and Structure (excellent craft book btw). It would be selfish of me not to point this edition of Writer's Digest out to all of you. Check it out.

Anyway, I hope you all have a great day and an awesome week as we skid into June!


  1. May I also suggest Poets & Writers as a must-have subscription for all writers (especially for literary fiction). Hope you had a great Memorial Day!

  2. Hi Miss GOP! Thanks for following and for the recommendation. I've heard of it, but I haven't subscribed yet. Off to check it out!

  3. Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.

    Thank you Blogger!

  4. I dropped my subscription last year because the articles weren't what I needed. I'll have to check out the July/Aug issue though. Thanks for the head up. :D

  5. I know I should subscribe to it. One of these days I'll get my act in gear. :)
    Hope you had a nice holiday weekend.
