Welcome to my first ever weekly Shoutout Sunday, where I throw some love to the posts/articles that inspired me in the past week.
SEO for Bloggers: The Non-Techie Guide – If you’ve never visited ByRegina.com, I’m thrilled that I’m the one to introduce you. She has so much information for bloggers and entrepreneurs, but her posts are never boring, technical, or confusing. She’s uber adorable, and this particular post is full of fantastic SEO tips.
8 Reasons to Write Outside Your Genre – I’m a new visitor to Denise’s site, and this was actually the first post of hers that I read. But it’s very informative, and I completely agree with the concept. There are times when I feel burned out while working on my novel, but the words come easily when I start writing poetry. After a day or two of strictly writing poetry, I’m ready to work on my manuscript again. Denise also has a great series on finding your voice as a writer.
How to Write a Novel, 15 Minutes at a Time – Interesting post from author J.P. Choquette about squeezing in your writing time whenever you can. While some high-and-mighty writers would probably scoff at sitting and writing in 15-minute increments, I say, more power to people writing when they can fit it into their day (or night). And then stopping when they feel themselves losing interest…and then going in fresh again the next day. This method wouldn’t work for everyone…but if it helps even one author finish their book, it’s done enough. 🙂
How To Edit Your Book Until It’s “Finished” – And I know this last one from Bryan Hutchinson wasn’t written in this past week. However, it’s way too good not to share. I read it last night, bookmarked it, read it again this morning, and will probably re-read it again in the coming week. I’m editing/revising right now (still on my first draft, boo), and I’ll take all the advice I can get.
Don’t forget to come back by on Tuesday, for my first ever Off-Topic Tuesday, and then the next day for Writing Wednesday. Have a wonderful week!
