Writing Links

I just thought I’d share with you all some writing related links, after a couple days of talking about myself.  First is Serendipity, a monthly online journal dedicated to magic realism and light fantasy fiction. There are some pretty good short stories posted there.  I particularly liked The Folded Page and In the CloudsThey are also accepting story submissions, so I’m going to give that a try.   The funny thing is that my daughter has a head cold again so I had to take her for a drive at 3:00 AM last night, but it was worth it because I had a story idea while driving around.  It will be perfect for this Serendipity, I think.  If and when I finish this piece (short story), I may ask some of you to be beta readers. I’ll let you know.

I also came across a post at Paperback Writer’s site (not our Paperback Writer, a different one)  about outlining a novel.  This was a very timely blog post as I would like to start planning for NaNoWriMo, which is only a month or so away.

Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for the links. Oh gosh, and the reminder that NaNo’s around the corner. I started worldbuilding a couple of months ago for a fantasy novel to do this year, but I haven’t touched it in quite a while. I guess I’d better get my butt in gear, huh?

    Hope the girl’s feeling better soon!

  2. Ah, I remember those days of driving my son around to get him to sleep. When he was sick, we used to strap him into a sling-chair thingey that vibrated to simulate car-riding. He would be sitting fairly upright, so that helped with the congestion. And we got a little more sleep.

    He’s nine now and beyond needing to be strapped into vibrating chairs to sleep. But often these days, as he is transitioning into a new school, he wants me to help him relax before bed with a guided mediation.

    Glad your drive was productive for your writing, at least. I usually get writing ideas in the shower myself. Driving scares me too much to let my mind go!

  3. I’m sorry I got the words order wrong in the above sentence.
    And I checked the figures with a calculator. Writing 1500-2000 words per day is not much – if you don’t have anything else to do, that is.

  4. SzélsőFa – I am going to try. I don’t expect to hit 50,000 words, but even half that would be a huge boost for me as I come nowhere close to that normally.

    Quality is surely affected, but it is a first draft so that shouldn’t be too much of a concern.

  5. strugglingwriter,

    Thanks for the links. I’m happy to hear you will be doing NaNoWriMo this year. I’ve been thinking about mine since December, although not very productively until recently. I’m really looking forward to it.
