A Smattering of Good Ideas for Writers


After six months of intense social media, I am taking a break this month. I have put out only one post a week on the Tarot and I’ve been having severe withdrawals taking a needed break from Facebook, Twitter and Triberr, so instead of another post, I thought I would share these great posts I’ve read this week. Maybe there's one or two to meet your needs:

Kristen Lamb is back from NYC where she attended the conference held by International Thriller Writers. She has come back with great insights on publishing: http://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/2012/07/18/an-industry-on-the-brink-five-mistakes-that-are-killing-traditional-publishing/
and today's post:
How Self Publishing has helped all writers: 

Twitter cheat sheet for Writers:

A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Your Self-Hosted WordPress Website

***And, authors, pay attention to this one about spamming:


I will be back next week with another Tarot post and you can visit me at Liv Rancourt’s new blog site for my guest post there on Wednesday: http://livrancourt.com/blog/

By the way, she has a really neat guest post by Rayne Hall on writing short stories this week (Rayne has published anthologies of short stories and offers good tips for all writers): http://livrancourt.com/2012/07/use-fear-to-feed-your-fiction-with-rayne-hall/.

Do you have any good blogs to share from this week? 

Have a great weekend!

I've been saving this post for days, waiting for a chance to dig-in and have a look at all these goodies. It was worth the wait, Cora! This is a keeper. Thanks for taking the time to share :-)
