Advice for Writers: 006

Let's get our brains rolling out of bed and into the week with some great writing advice from the blogosphere.

The Writer (Still) Runs This Show, by Sonia Simone. Okay, so this isn't advice as much as a downloadable PDF that you can hang next to your computer. Still, there's nothing like an upbeat mantra to get the week started on the right foot.

You Don't Need a Degree to Find Your Voice, by L.L. Barkat. In this post, Barkat makes a strong argument that our voices as writers are found in our passions--not in a creative writing program or writing conference.

25 Things You Should Know About NaNoWriMo, by Chuck Wendig. November is just around the corner, and so is the NaNoWriMo challenge for (would-be) novelists.

3 Tips for Riding the Rejection/Acceptance Roller Coaster, by Suzannah Windsor Freeman. Rejections are like little deaths for a writer, and acceptances can kill the writing momentum just as much as a rejection at times. Learn how to ride the ups and downs of a freelance existence.

Reading With Attention, by Victoria Mixon. Editor/author/blogger Mixon leads writers through the process of reading for plot structure and character development. This skill will have special importance for those who complete NaNoWriMo next month.

That's the good advice for this week. See you next Monday.
