A Week In Links

I invest a ludicrous amount of time reading. Whether I read novels, blogs, craft books or research material, I always try to find useful or inspiring bits of information each week. And then I save them. This week, the focus of conversation has moved back to where it should be: Craft. The actual craft of writing. At the end of the day, we need well written, engaging stories. All the social media in the world won’t save us from ill crafted books.

First up, J.A. Konrath. His post, Writing Matters, is up on his blog, A Newbie’s Guide To Publishing Check it out.

  1. I read Bob Mayer’s post last night and was happy to see him saying craft is where it’s at. Content is what you need to get readers. Not fans, not followers, nothing but readers. And readers will come back to you if you write a good story. Nice choices of posts to feature this week, Laney.
