Best in Blogs May 10-16 #amwriting #amreading

Here's some of my favorite blogs. I'd be thrilled if you'd share one of yours in the comments!

StoryFix 2.0
One of the best writing craft blogs - Larry Brooks
"We’re all looking for an edge. Sometimes that search confines itself to the realm of story as a definable essence… a better concept, a stronger premise, a firmer command of craft."

Miss Snark's First Victim
Time to get ready for May's Secret Agent contest!
"Please note: This is NOT the call for submissions! The contest will open next Monday, May 18.
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES (please read carefully):"

Writer Unboxed
Writing craft and so much more - today, the BIG question
"When my son was small and not overly-verbal, he went through a phase where he’d point at something (or at nothing) and ask one of journalism’s Five W’s (plus one H). Just the one, single word. “Which?” he’d say, jabbing a stubby finger at the sky. Or he’d point in the direction of a worm wriggling blindly on the sidewalk and ask, “When?” While we’d be driving along I-5, he’d spot a 747 in the clouds and chirp, “How?”

Janet Reid, Literary Agent
A great question and even better answer!
"When an agent says they want a brief synopsis, what does that mean? I know you can't read the minds of other agents but would you assumethat means one page? two pages? six pages?"

Michelle 4 Laughs
Opportunity for published authors who've participated in one of Michelle's great contests!
"I'm starting a new series of posts as we wait for Query Kombat time to arrive. They are called Help Out a Veteran, because all the authors will be veterans of one of my contests!"
