Advice for Writers: 033

Let's see what I could find this week.

Dare to Suck, by Keith Cronin. It takes a lot of courage to suck, and the rewards can be...well...rewarding. Seriously.

The Death of Blogging and ... Blogging, by Julianna Baggott. For those of you who question whether blogging is a good or bad thing, here's a post to help muddy the waters even more.

Writing & Illustrating a Picture Book for Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers (Part 1), by Debbie Ridpath Ohi. Inkygirl (as Debbie dubs herself) is going to chronicle the entire process of creating a picture book for S&S--from the initial idea development to the finish line. It promises to be a very intesting series, especially if you're not familiar with how picture books are made.

The Best E-Publishing Resources, by Jane Friedman. I don't think there's anyone who has a better understanding of the best online tools for writers than Jane. In this post, of course, she's focusing on e-publishing.

9 Steps to Take When You Loathe Your Own Blog, by Ryan Barton. Anyone who's spent enough time blogging runs into this problem, and Ryan shares some strategies for overcoming the self-loathing.

Poem Types: A List of Poetry Forms, by Robert Lee Brewer. I don't usually link to my other blog, but it would be a crime if I didn't share this post that includes more than 30 poetic forms. For any poets out there, this is a post that should provide hours of poeming fun.

Great post, Robert! I can't wait to get a chance to roll through each of these (and definitely look forward to revisiting your poetic forms post at Poetic Asides; I've gotten the itch to write some more "formal" poetry!)
