Lately I've read several blog posts where I found myself thinking "Yes! Exactly!" Or "Wow... I always wondered that." Or "Oh-Holy-Cow I had no clue." Posts so amazing/useful/timely I wanted to make sure you didn't miss them. :)
So here's my Monday Linkapalooza:
First up: Ally Carter's A Letter to Baby Author Me (circa 2004).
Brilliant advice for baby authors. I LOVE THIS POST. A must-read IMO. Read it here if you missed it.
Next: Megan Shepherd's Attitude Makes the Writer.
Megan starts the post with this quote: "The more I think about it, the more I think writing success comes from the right attitude, not talent." Her post is raw and and introspective and eloquently written, and inspires you to "keep moving forward." Did you read it? No? Oh, you're in luck! It's right here!
And then: Justine Larbalestier's Becoming a Brand Versus Writing What You Want to Write.
"You do not have to stick to writing the same kinds of books to have a successful writing career." Don't you want to read more? Go here.
Don't miss: Natalie Whipple's The Truth About Teens Buying Books.
Natalie's got a 13yo sister and she's got the scoop. I loved this post, because it's handy and REAL. WHY do teens buy books? The number 2 reason? Word of mouth. The number one reason? Go here to find out. :)
Last but not least: Roni Loren's Bloggers Beware: You CAN Get Sued for Using Pics on Your Blog.
Do you blog? Use pics? Then this post is A MUST READ. Run. Go here now.
And that's it y'all! Happy linkapalooza! :)
