Like many people in the U.S., I’m taking advantage of the three-day Memorial Day weekend to unplug. I’ll be spending time with my family, giving my laptop a chance to cool down for a few days.
In the mean time, here are a few reads for your (long) weekend:
- Editor Devil Illegal Stacking Ahead I like Christine Fairchild’s breakdown of this particular writing issue so much, that I’ll forgive her the use of two exclamation points on one sentence. Seriously good advice here.
- FreelanceFolder Create a Compelling Online Portfolio by Guest Blogging This post offers some great tips for identifying and nabbing guest blogging spots. It’s also a little self-serving because it gives me an opportunity to remind you that I’m looking for guest bloggers in June.
- Lisa Romeo Writes Stuff My (Writing) Students Say, Part III Lisa’s recent series that answer student questions (and frustrations) regarding the writing process is interesting and helpful. This one offers tips on revising, yet feeling married to your words.
- ThursdayBram.com Pitching Magazine Editors on Twitter, Plus 80+ Editors on Twitter Fellow freelancer Thursday generously shares the Twitter handles of more than 80 editors. It’s a fantastic resource.
Your turn. Any great reads that you’d like to share with your fellow readers? Print counts, too, it doesn’t have to be something online. If you’re hooked on a new book or loved an article or essay in a magazine, include it here. Please share in the comments below. Thanks!
