On this day of the fourth Carnival of the Canucks, I'm doing a carnival of my own, this one focusing on writer blogs. This will not be a weekly event, unless somebody else wants to take it up. We have a number of writers and poets online, and many of their blogs are well worth reading. Of course they are; it's their job after all.
So, here's what's happening in the writing blogosphere (feel free to post additional links in the comments):
Joe Clifford Faust has a number of interesting posts, including one where he talks about where notions come from, and a link to Holt Uncensored's Ten Mistakes Writers' Don't See (But Can Easily Fix When They Do). Good advice, all.
Thank goodness! Imogen McCallum is back blogging after a long absense. She has had a hectic (to put it mildly) holiday. How she manages to juggle so much and still write is beyond me, but watch her. Her fantasy works will be published someday, I'm sure of it.
One of the best unpublished (thus far) writers out there is Rebecca Anderson. Her fantasy story Knife is now off to the publishers, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for her.
Ancarett, also a candidate for the Carnival of the Canucks is off to Kalamazoo for a Medieval Studies conference. You can read some of her fan fiction here.
Republican James DiBenedetto talks mostly politics in his blog, and has a good post acknowledging a call for civility from the left. He's on this list because he writes as well, and here's where you can find his work.
Playwright and author Charles Deemer (his memoirs, spread throughout his blog, are truly memorable) talks about a chance event that sparked two story ideas, one of which he expects to finish this week.
I'm sure I've only scratched the surface. But that's not bad for an hour's work. If you think I've missed something big, please correct me, by posting a comment about it.
