I am glad to report, I have been working away on Tales of Larrick City this week as planned. In the process, I’ve also been reading a lot of other peoples blog’s. This is both an educational experience but also very interesting to see the different styles, different advise and just the different things people post about.
Take this update for example from one of my favourite authors, Aaron Dembski-Bowden, talking about the writing of his latest novel. The post is entitled “Lets talk about Abaddon”. For Warhammer 40K players you’ll know what he’s talking about.
The post is humourous, as well as being very insightful into the world he is writing on and the amount of research he’s been doing. And like I said, it’s just damn funny. It’s the kind of blog I wish I could write. Interesting, informative and funny.
Then there’s this blog from Randy Ross
This one is more of an insight into the writers experiences with social media. Which, sadly, seem to have been not the very best particularly regards Facebook and Twitter. Read carefully and you see plenty of hints and tips on how to maximize their effect, as well as pitfalls to avoid; a very informative blog post.
Finally, from Bob Mayer.
This post is all about writing marathons and I thought quite useful due to my intention to run with Nanowrimo in November. Again, its an advise blog with plenty of very good information.
These blogs and more have greatly encouraged me in my writing and I hope they do the same for you. I still consider myself a complete novice in the world of the writer so I don’t feel I’m in a position to write ‘advise’ blogs just yet. But I think I can still make my posts interesting to the reader and I hope this one has been interesting for you, if only just to direct you to other peoples sites.
It will be a learning experience as I continue to experiment with my online presence. In particular this week I have seen a massive increase in my activates on Goodreads.com. Come visit me if you are on the site yourself J
Till next time everyone, have a good weekend.
