Google Reader Roundup





The Blog and I want to thank everyone yesterday for the birthday wishes. The Blog got a little uppity over its age this morning and we didn't get this post lined up until late this morning. We hope you will forgive. We were partied out!

  • Kristin Nelson says that if you've got an offer from an agent, why not shop around if you have your manuscript out with other agents?
  • Tahereh, who is just a clever and very funny person, further proves her creativity by writing a newspaper style post about Twilight. In the comments, people said how hard they laughed, but what you should note is Tahereh's sheer inventiveness. She just showed us why her forthcoming novel is going to be very good indeed.
  • Anne Allen has a great post on ignoring bad advice from your critique group. This is such a good post (as are all of Anne's) and I loved how each one of her points are exactly things I've heard being harped on in my writing group. What's so great about this post is that by calling each thing out, I almost feel that ignoring each one is validated. I bow to you, Anne. She wins the Roundup prize this week.

Sierra, thanks for bringing a little sunshine into what has been a horrendous week (started with the water heater exploding and flooding the house and went downhill from there. I'm still mourning the loss of scores of books.)

So thanks much for your Google Roundup prize.

And happy birthday to your blog!
