I'm in the midst of the last two weeks of the semester, which means final presentations and final exams. Not a lot of interest to a romance writer!
Could I possibly do a "quick" blog post? Not likely, but maybe a blog referral I could do.
Picking a consistent favorite is tough, however. A lot of blogs seem to be currently suffering from bouts of crankiness out there. There is a lot of: "what-not-to-do-itis." I even read an agent post that I usually enjoy practically begging NaNoWriMo writers NOT to send him their just completed manuscripts. At least for a year. I guess that makes sense, but seriously? Is it necessary to point that out? Not that I've done NaNoWriMo (yet!), but if I did, or when I do, I think I'd be a little offended. It's a huge accomplishment! I doubt, however, I'd be thinking it was ready to go out on December 1.
Oops, I just rambled into a topic.
But back to blog/website referrals. How about something truly useful? For instance, need some maps for your Regency?
From the site Jane Austen's World, they have a link to: Maps of 18th and 19th Century London.
Richard Horwood's 1792-1799 Plan of London and Westminster - quite simply, the most detailed map of Georgian and Regency London you will ever find. It shows every house (with numbers), every alley, every tavern, every work and alms house. Magnificent.
I guess that's three links. It's like eating potato chips. Then again, you might never leave the Jane Austen's World site. Oh, so tempting!
What would be your pick(s) for your most useful writing site(s)? Any favorite blog posts or web sites you'd like to share? Please do! Or, what do you think about the agent's rant on NaNoWriMo submissions?
SPELLING MATTERS! - I love language memes and jokes that highlight the importance of spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Perhaps you’ve seen the joke where two sentences are...
